April 28th, 2021 - Help Them Home Online Giving Day

A big thank you to all who helped us reached our $40,000 goal ($48,828) this year (see details here), allowing us to expand our Roadmap to Success program to help youth 12-18 with mentoring, tutoring, life skills and helping them work toward graduation and their future. This Help Them Home collaboration with 19 other Orange County non-profits yielded a total of $2,163,132 and StandUp for Kids was proud to stand alongside these other non-profits to end homeless in our local communities during this 24-hour event!
