Stand Up Placer’s Support during the Coronavirus Crisis

Article By Alyssa Mielke

One of Stand Up Placer's Housing Team packs groceries for those in need.

The coronavirus has made it more difficult than ever for domestic violence survivors to leave their abusers due to financial instability and the quarantine. Stand Up Placer has modified available services to best serve those who need them.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and there are still plenty of ways to help spread awareness. One way to help is to answer Stand Up Placer’s donation request for food boxes. Donations of perishable and nonperishable food are accepted Tuesdays between 8:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at the Roseville service office. Call the office number below for additional details.
