Adopt a youth

Adopt A Youth Today!

You can make a difference in the life of a homeless or at-risk youth for just $29 a month.

StandUp for Kids helps homeless and at-risk youth in their teens and twenties by providing them much-needed support as they try to make better lives for themselves. We do this by assisting them with their immediate material needs, providing mentorship and friendship, and empowering them to pursue other life goals.

When you "adopt" a youth, your monthly donation will go towards supporting the youth who regularly come to the StandUp For Kids drop-in center. Your donation will help us provide a range of services, which might include meals, hygiene items, clothing, metro fare, resume printing, GED or SAT study materials or test fees, and other needs particular to these youths' situations. Your donation will pay directly for these services, and if there is anything left over, it will contribute to our very low operating costs.

We will provide you with a quarterly update about what services your donations enable StandUp For Kids to provide those youth, and what impact our chapter is having overall in the lives of these young people.
