Perhaps you caught our story a couple of weeks ago about Sateash Hime. She's a RAD advocate in her own rite. And you can be too.
Just out of graduate school, Sateash hoped to help at-risk kids as a caseworker in a foster adoption program. But Sateash had learned very little about reactive attachment disorder (RAD), a prominent struggle due to the early trauma many of the children had experienced.
Although Sateash had the passion, she didn't have the knowledge to help the children and their families. And neither did her colleagues.
Thankfully, Sateash crossed paths with the nonprofit organization RAD Advocates. They educated her about RAD and ignited a new passion and direction in her career. Today, she is guiding kids and families with empathy, knowledge, and resources.
People can't help to remedy a problem they don't know understand. There are still so many passionate people who can make a real difference like Sateash. With the right education, they can do so much better for families. You can help advance that movement. “Amy [of RAD Advocates] opened my eyes to an entirely different presentation of attachment than I had ever even thought of before,” says Sateash. “RAD Advocates is absolutely influential in making change and creating a shift and understanding about RAD.”
With your support of education and advocacy about RAD, you can help to reach more professionals like Sateash and so many others in various roles. For too many, they still don't have the knowledge they need to truly help kids and families. Please don't wait—you can be a RAD advocate from your corner of the world today.
