13 kids die on the street every day.
The mission of standup is to help street kids.
Will you standup for kids?

"I lived on the streets and slept in doorways. I begged for food on corners and ate out of dumpsters. I bathed in the river. The help StandUp For Kids provided for me was amazing. Thank you for your faith in all of us."


Will You StandUp For Kids?

The mission is to end the cycle of youth homelessness throughout the United States.

We do this, every day, in cities across America. We carry out our mission through our volunteers who go to the streets in order to find, stabilize and otherwise help homeless and street kids improve their lives.

While making a video with LeAnn Rimes in August 2011 these kids shared their thoughts and dreams.
