Orange County

 Check out our 2017 Annual Report here!

The StandUp For Kids – Orange County Chapter was launched in 2003. The Orange County chapter operates on four core programs:

  • Street Outreach
  • Outreach Centers
  • Mentoring
  • Apartment Support.

All of our programs have the overall goal of leading homeless youth to self-sufficiency and preventing at-risk youth from gang involvement, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, and dropping out of high school.

Thank you for making 2017 yet another amazing year!
