StandUp For Kids is committed to the help and rescue of homeless and street kids. We do this, every day, in cities across America. We carry out our mission through our volunteers who go to the streets in order to find, stabilize and otherwise help homeless and street kids improve their lives.

StandUp for Kids - Oceanside is committed to ending the cycle of youth homelessness. We do this, one youth at a time.
StandUp for Kids - Oceanside has been operating since 2001. The Oceanside chapter operates the following core programs:
All of our programs have the overall goal of leading homeless youth to self-sufficiency and preventing at-risk youth from gang involvement, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, and dropping out of high school.
Our Oceanside chapter has had the same core motto since it’s inception. "This is Home" We have and continue to be a "home" for kids who do not currently have one.
Over our years of operating an outreach center, the Oceanside chapter has serviced thousands of youth. We do this with our strong volunteer group, our immensely supportive community and through individual’s caring enough to make a difference.
