StandUp For Kids - Denver was established in 1991 and has served our youth in various ways since then.At the core of what we do is true friendship...we meet these kids "where they are and wherever they are" and we do it consistently and they know that we will always be there for them. We are able to refer them to the many services here locally when they are interested and in need but even when they are not, we're here for them. Often times it is a loving, non judgmental consistent adult presence in their lives that is missing and we try to provide that to them.
