RtR addresses a significant and recognized, but almost entirely unaddressed drain on the impact of every dollar donated to any non-profit.  


What is this drain that RtR addresses for non-profits?  For-profits call it “burnout”.  Non-profits recognize it as burnout, or as “empathy fatigue”, “churn” and “compassion fatigue”.


Why is burnout such a drain on non-profits?  For-profits monetize the great value of a key-employee who has developed/applied atypically effective and experience-earned skills.  These key-people are the single greatest drivers of profit in any for-profit organization.  In the non-profit world, where such key-persons’ uniquely-effective, experience-earned skills may accomplish: helping the homeless, (or the jobless or addicted or abandoned or poor or disadvantaged or hungry, the trafficked etc..) the loss of that key person/volunteer/low-paid staffer with those key-skills is an incredible loss too.  The loss in the case of a non-profit is not a loss of profit of course, but a loss of even greater importance to a whole community. (for example: to suffering animals, environment, or people).  


Key-people who burn out in charitable work may drop slowly down in their passion level or effectiveness before they actually must quit.  The good news is that, just as with for-profits: The burnout process can often be prevented. Key-people who are suffering burnout can also be fully “restored”.  RtR accomplishes both, for non-profits, as our mission.
