Make room for caring, your help is needed more than ever. 

We truly appreciate all who want to be involved as we face this unprecedented event. Whether you are an organization looking for volunteers, or residents who would like to give back, Roseville Cares is meant to provide our community with a resource tool to bring us together.

Working with nonprofit agencies, we also list open resources available to residents who are in need. 

We urge you to be flexible, proactive, and safe in this process, and to check back frequently for updates.

To add your organization to our list of volunteer opportunities, or open resources, please fill out and submit the attached form.

Nonprofit volunteers and resources needed

Practicing social distancing doesn’t mean you have to stop your service to the community. Our nonprofit partners still, and in some cases more critically than ever, depend on volunteer support to fulfill their missions.

Before deciding to volunteer, make sure this doesn’t apply to you:

Do you feel under the weather, or have you been around anyone who appears sick?

Do you belong to the vulnerable portion of the population that could get sick?


NO? Then you are ready to volunteer. Make sure to follow the guidelines set by the CDC to protect yourself against COVID-19. We also recommend reaching out to the agency directly to make sure all volunteer needs are available, and to obtain more information.
