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. We have been on the streets since January 1990 and continue to grow our organization to help America's homeless youth.
Street Outreach Counselors walk the streets in teams, to find and help homeless and street kids. Counselors provide food, clothing and hygiene products but most importantly must genuinely care about the kids and work patiently and consistently with those kids to help save their lives.
Counselors befriend the kids while helping them work toward a life off the streets through connecting them to resources such as housing, employment, food and education. Counselors also provide moral support as well as resources, food and hygiene products.

Ending the cycle of youth homelessness. We do this in cities across America, one youth at a time.
Since May 2011, we have been connecting homeless and at-risk youth in DC with much-needed services around the District. We engage youth through street outreach and outreach centers at different locations throughout the city. The work we do is a very effective combination of stand-alone StandUp for Kids activities and collaborations with other youth-serving organizations.
Our core programs are street outreach, outreach center and advocacy.
