INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — April is celebrated nationally as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and organizations in the basin are preparing to recognize the month with events that center around raising awareness and supporting survivors.
On the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, Sierra Community House is doing as much work as they can to spread awareness and offer support to community members in the Tahoe and Truckee area.
Last year alone, the SCH team provided 677 community members with sexual assault-related services, including advocacy, peer-counseling, safety planning, and through their support with their 24-hour help-hotline.
