Homeless Teen Falls Into Tears After Life-Changing Gift

A special thank you to @11Alive for sharing one of our kid's stories!! Chinasa is a tremendous young lady with an amazing heart and future! This shows that a kind act for our youth can not only change their life, but also give everyone more faith that given the opportunity people can reach heights unimaginable.

The most important thing now is to share this amazing story! Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to spread this gift to all. @SUFKatlanta #homelessstudentgetsacar #goingplaces #issomebodygettingmarried #SheBelieves

Our Programs

Street Outreach

Street Outreach Volunteers connect with homeless and at-risk kids under 25 on the streets of Atlanta. They provide resources, toiletries, snack packs, and harm reduction counseling to address the risks associated with street life. We need more feet on the street! Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday evenings.

Interested? Contact Tramell, our awesome Director of Volunteer Support, at TramellA@standupforkids.org

Mentoring

Caring adults are matched with a homeless or at-risk high school student and meet two times a month during lunch (select Fulton County Schools).

Consistent relationships gives them the support and encouragement needed to stay in school and graduate.

Take the next steps to making a difference. Email Tramell to find out more! Applications should be submitted to TramellA@standupforkids.org.
