Review for StandUp For Kids, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This program is an incredible representation of community organizing to address the multisystemic, incredibly complex needs of homeless and runaway youth. And to think it's all done by volunteers who have kids, jobs that pay, and other demands...yet still get out on the streets, and into the shelters, and stay on kids that need guidance, and nurture those that have no other supports... that's an incredible testament to the culture of StandUp For Kids and the power of every community to address the needs of its most vulnerable population.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

a feeling of real change and the friendships that come with the youth and volunteers from wide swaths of life

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly dedicated

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open drop-in centers and coordinate housing support for thousands of youth around the country.

Ways to make it better...

i had known on day 1 what i know now about volunteer development and community partnerships.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

growth in numbers of homeless youth met with increased competition for limited funds.

One thing I'd also say is that...

for what limited resources the program has, it does one heck of a lot and it never falls through for the kids.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
