STAND! For Families Free Of Violence
Last updated on November 25, 2015


STAND! For Families Free of Violence is a catalyst for breaking the multi-generational cycle of violence, promoting safe and strong relationships, and rebuilding lives.

STAND! For Families Free of Violence is committed to promoting safe and strong families. Our approach to eliminating family violence is well-rounded and community-wide. In addition to providing a complete spectrum of prevention, intervention, and treatment programs, we also enlist the efforts of local residents, partners, and institutions, all of whom are striving with us to stop domestic violence and child abuse.

STAND! is a founding member of the Zero Tolerance for Domestic Violence Initiative, a cross-sector organization working to help solve domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. However, we cannot achieve our mission without the help of every individual, every school, every faith community, every neighborhood, and every business.

STAND! provides over twenty critical life-saving programs and services to those who have been affected by domestic violence and/or child abuse. These include a 24 hour crisis hotline, emergency shelter, food, clothing vouchers, transitional housing, vocational training, parent education, and counseling, among other services. STAND! is one of the largest agencies of its kind in northern California, and has a distinguished history of designing, developing and implementing innovative and effective programs, and is the recipient of local, statewide and national recognition.

Most of our volunteer positions require volunteers to complete a 50+ hour Mandated Agency Training. We offer this training multiple times a year. Our next training will likely occur in early 2016.

STAND! Against Domestic Violence started with a single phone line in a utility closet and a core group of volunteers dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence. A year later, the Family Stress Center received its first grant to begin serving victims of child abuse and neglect. These two historic non-profits became one unified agency on July 1st, 2010.
