StandUp For Kids -


The mission of StandUp For Kids is ending the cycle of youth homelessness. 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.

If you are experiencing homelessness and are between the ages of 12-24; Call our hotline at (888) 365-4543
