COVID-19: National Emergency

Current Events & News | 03/16/2020

Communications and Community Engagement Manager

As we're sure everyone is aware, the spread of the coronavirus has reached Memphis and Shelby County, leaving families to take extra precautions to ensure that their children and loved ones stay healthy during this critical time.

At Stand, we're concerned for our whole community, the impact on our most vulnerable citizens, and potential barriers children and families will experience during this national emergency. We hope to assist by helping to spread information and support community efforts from our governments and direct service agencies as they become necessary and available.

Our office will be closed from March 13 – March 30 while staff will be working remotely to keep our advocacy efforts moving forward. We will make determinations about meetings and gatherings as needed with up-to-date information and a focus on safety.

Stay tuned to our social media pages to find out about available community resources and tips on how you can protect yourself and your family. If you're aware of resources that we should share, please send them along to us!

Exercise precautions and stay safe and healthy!
