Who We Are

StandUp for Kids is a national non-profit organization dedicated to ending the cycle of youth homelessness in local communities like yours. Since 1990, we have cared for homeless and at-risk youth by transitioning them from crisis to connection. We give our youth a sense of safety, hope, and belonging through housing support, mentoring, drop-in centers, and street outreach. We bear the highest independent ratings for fiscal stewardship of all donations.

We appreciate partners like Kia Motors of America, for recognizing us as leaders in the fight against youth homelessness. And we are honored to be recipients of their fundraising efforts through #YardsAgainstHomelessness and #GiveItEverything campaigns.
