Local News

Thanks to the hard work and trust from "our kids", dedicated volunteers and local organizational partners, StandUp For Kids - Tucson has been able to get 4 street kids off the streets and into apartments, 3 jobs for kids, and are pleased to welcome a new baby boy - safely in housing with his mother!

Many homeless teens migrate to Tucson during the cold winter months. We are actively seeking new volunteers and donations to help prepare for this influx.


The Tucson StandUp For Kids Chapter has been blessed with numerous in-kind donations that have almost completed our materials needs for the coming year!
