Get Help

A survivor of domestic violence and sexual assault is often afraid, embarrassed or ashamed to ask for help, or doesn’t know who to trust. If you or someone you know needs assistance, contact Stand Up Placer. Regardless of what you were wearing, whether or not you knew the person, if drugs or alcohol were involved or if you are heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, or transgender, you are a survivor; you did not make the choice for this to happen. We know it’s hard to tell someone that you have been sexually assaulted or to break free of an abusive relationship. At Stand Up Placer our services are survivor driven. We provide options, resources, and referrals for survivors, and empower you to set goals and make the changes you want for your life. You will find an atmosphere free of judgment or agendas. We care about you and your family. We will not force you to make any choices that do not feel right for you. We firmly believe that everyone – woman, man, or child – deserves a life free from violence. Services Include:
