About StandUp for Kids - Houston, TX

StandUp For Kids Houston mission is to end the cycle of youth homelessness. 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.
The Houston chapter has been in operation since 2005 running different programs to relieve the youth homelessness. We started with Street Outreach at the Montrose neighborhood by reaching out to the homeless youth and giving them non-perishable food, clothing and hygiene products. In 2011, we were fortunate to obtain a center to accomplish our Drop-In program. Through the Drop-in center, the clients have a safe place to socialize, to enjoy a hot meal and to take with them basic necessities such as hygiene supplies, clothing, shoes and food. For a few hours at the center, the youth can take the advantage of our services and resources. We provide help in obtaining ID, resume preparation, and resources for housing. Our third program, Apartment Support, emerged in 2013 to provide food and housing supplies to clients who were able to obtain housing through various grants.
