2021 Calendar of Events


May 1 – 31, 2021 – Home is Where the Heart Is – Art for a Purpose

StandUp for Kids - Silicon Valley is part of Affordable Housing Month – Silicon Valley (AHM) 2021.  

Grab those crayons, or paintbrush, and join us as we use the power of art to express what home means to us.

“Artists are just children who refuse to put down their crayons,” Al Hirschfeld.

Images have power. They can express hope. A family event for all ages to raise public awareness and envision creative and collaborative solutions to societal issues (affordable housing/homelessness), through art. We work with homeless youth (aged 12-24) building a life off the streets where they imagine what their home would look like, feel like, a room of their own, a safe haven.

During the Month of May, we bring you a virtual event for families together with their little ones (18 and under) to illustrate a picture of home by a colorful drawing, painting, or graphic that will be submitted to StandUp for Kids to be shared on their social media, and be entered into a drawing for a StandUp for Kids gift basket.
