StandUp for Kids CA

StandUp for Kids was founded in 1990 to help rescue homeless and at-risk youth. StandUp for Kids is run almost entirely by volunteers, and has programs in a number of states. The mission of StandUp for Kids is to help homeless and street kids. The mission is carried out by a national volunteer force whose on-the-streets outreach efforts will find, stabilize and assist homeless and street kids in their efforts to improve their lives. In addition to helping homeless and at-risk youth with immediate necessities such as food, clothing, shelter and personal hygiene, StandUp for Kids offers a wide array of services, including: assistance in finding housing; education assistance; vocational development; counseling; health services; transportation to self-help meetings; and legal assistance.
