StandUp For Kids San Diego is committed to the help and rescue of homeless and street youth, one youth at a time. 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 - San Diego opened its doors in 1990 as the first StandUp For Kids chapter. StandUp For Kids - San Diego operates four core programs:
Outreach Drop-In Center
Teen homelessness rates are on the rise. Our concern is that homeless kids are the most likely target of human traffickers, pornographers and gangs. These vulnerable kids are forced to endure unimaginable horrors, just to survive.
Our main focus is on prevention; providing an array of resources and services to help homeless youth on their journey to self-sufficient adulthood.

I have not witnessed kids being on the street but I know that they are as a child I did not have much money there were times I didn't know if we would have food we struggled and if i can help kids eat stay clothed and stay off the streets I would love to help. I'm a mother I wouldn't want my son to have to go through that so I'd love to help make a difference.
