About Us

StandUp for Kids is a nationally recognized non-profit charity that works directly with thousands of homeless youth across the country. Our organization was founded in 1990 by a group of volunteers in San Diego, CA. Starting from a program in one city, StandUp for Kids has grown to sustain locations in 18 cities across 11 states and the District of Columbia. We remain a nearly all-volunteer organization that prioritizes the needs of the youth we serve. Simply put, we are here to empower homeless and at-risk youth toward lifelong personal growth, and to create in these youth a sincere belief in themselves through open, straightforward counseling, mentoring, and life-skills training. Our national office is located in Decatur, Georgia.
