Every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening StandUp For Kids opens our drop-in center for the homeless teens that we serve. We provide a meal, access to clothing and other necessities, and a listening ear. We are looking for volunteers to commitment to at least two evenings per month to work with our youth, show kindness and care, and help them see there is a way out of the cycle of homelessness.
We operate our drop-in center from 6:30pm--9pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays here in Lakeview, just off of the Paulina stop of the Brown Line. Come join our dedicated volunteers to help the over 100 homeless teens we assist each and every week. Bring a friend. Make a friend, Be a part of the solution.
