StandUp for Kids – Worcester
StandUp for Kids – Worcester, partnering with the Pleasant Street Neighborhood Network Center, has opened an Outreach Center at 301 Pleasant Street, Worcester to provide services for homeless and at-risk youth. The Center is located on a city bus route, just a half mile from Main Street. We will be open on Wednesdays 4:30 – 6:30 pm and Saturdays 10 am – 2 pm.
Youth can visit the Center any time during open hours to receive meals, clothing, hygiene products, help with access to housing and education, and referrals to other youth services. Volunteer counselors and staff will work with youth at the Center to set goals, plan steps to reach their goals, and work towards self-sufficiency.
