Mission Statement

StandUp For Kids Hampton Roads 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.

Description

StandUp for Kids - Hampton Roads is the second oldest StandUp For Kids chapter, having been established in 1991 at the Virginia Beach oceanfront. Our volunteers serve homeless youth up to age 24 and their dependents through the following programs:

Drop In Center
The Drop In Center provides hot meals, games/crafts, counseling, and assistance with immediate needs three times per week

Street Outreach Program
The Street Outreach program is an opportunity to meet youth where they are; held in conjunction with the Drop In Center hours

High School Mentoring Initiative
In partnership with Old Dominion University, high school students are paired with college mentors that help support their educational goals. Through this initiative, we support a "Pay for Grade" program to further encourage our students’ success

I am the chapter's Director of Community Resource Development. Volunteers interested in helping youth living on the streets can apply their talents as it best suits them. One can work directly with the youth or as support in the background. Thank you for considering.
