- Help us help you !! -
EDITOR's NOTE: NAASCA needs your participation - Help us help you !! - The National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse is growing quickly, both in terms of the International community we're reaching and in terms of the many unique tools and service we offer. Several new projects have been launched recently, including the re-awakening of our monthly Newsletter, the new mobile-friendly version of our web site (www.NAASCA-mobile.org), great for smart phone searches, and our newly launched organizational project, the Ambassador tool. We need help with all of these .. and we've plans for much more, too.

Dearest friend:

We're asking for your help. NAASCA needs volunteers (and donations) to achieve the plans we have for the coming year. We're self-supporting through our own contributions, depending on a group of dedicated volunteers who participate by doing the actual work, and on voluntary contributions from our NAASCA family members. We've no dues or fees. We have no 'funding' and are not supported by any outside groups.

If you wish to volunteer with us, please get in touch with , please get in touch with Jo Calk of Oregon: jclk123@outlook.com - 541 / 921-9435. She coordinates our volunteers and can point a new volunteer in the right direction. Believe me, with all there is to do Jo will find something for each of you. We believe eachof us can play a role in educating the public, and offering services for healing to still-suffering adult survivors of childhood traumas !!

We'll never do less than we're already doing, but some desired future projects, NAASCA printed materials and video presentations for example, cost more than I'm willing to ask any individual member to support. The organization's treasury, such as it is, will handle this.

To be clear, here's a short list of things NAASCA doesn't do:

Lend money

Find jobs

Arrange housing

Give legal advice / assistance

Do professional counseling

We're quite proud of how much has been achieved already. About 30 FREE programs and services are now offered by the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA). They're available to the global community that fights against child abuse and trauma.

Membership at NAASCA is simply a matter of self-declaring one's volunteer participation and agreement with our important cause. We describe ourselves as a grassroots "NAASCA family."

We're all non-paid volunteers, and the core group of those who keep this effort going are extremely dedicated to the commitment they've made to the NAASCA family and experience.

While we're all responsible to some degree for OUTREACH (spreading our web site and effort) and helping to FUNDRAISE (encouraging financial contributions to support our efforts), we have some specific volunteer opportunities we'd like to highlight:

EARLY HISTORY - pre 2019

NAASCA and its "sister site" LACP.org (LA Community Policing, launched in 2002, it deals with issues of general public safety) were both originally grassroots not-for-profit efforts.

We launched the newer National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA) in 2008. The purpose remains to educate and engage people about all the issues of child abuse and trauma .. prevention, intervention and recovery .. and to offer hope / to fellow survivors.

Originally strictly an LACP project, our "Community Matters" Internet-based talk radio show had already done over 150 episodes (it now has done 600).

In 2009 we began additional week night episodes under the "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) name, where child abuse issues are always the topics. We also produced few video blogs or YouTube tapes.

NAASCA became a non-profit organization in late 2015 .. and we're now asking for your support.

Yours in service,

Bill Murray
LACP / NAASCA founder
