Youth Resources

Here at StandUp for Kids, our purpose is to support young people that may need some assistance changing their life circumstances.

If you are under the age of 25 and find yourself in a temporary or unstable housing situation, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve consolidated a list of our recommendations, partners and go-to resources for helping young people in our community.

We are also available to meet with you on Monday nights between the hours of 6pm and 9pm. We spend these nights providing food, water, hygiene, sleeping bags and referral counseling.

If you have any questions, need anything or want to meet up with us on an upcoming Monday, please call our hotline at 888-365-4543 and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
