StandUp For Kids
October 1, 2009

StandUp for Kids is an outstanding organization dedicated to the needs of homeless and at-risk youth. As the Co-Executive Director of the San Antonio Chapter, I have a very dedicated team of volunteers who in addition to doing street outreach, help homeless youth with education and job assistance, residential, medical, legal and counseling referrals and assistance to get back home. It's my honor to contribute to the success of the mission of this organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping a young mother of two small children get off the streets and begin her journey of supporting her children. Assisting a young man, a Katrina suvivor, learn how to live independently, work and begin a medical technical training program at Job Corp.

More feedback

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

The humble young people we serve everyday in this community... their resilience and tenacity in their effort to create a better life for themselves.

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

I've been doing some kind of volunteer work my entire adult life and I have never, ever seen people dedicate this much of their personal time in a volunteer capacity.

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

Hire much needed national and regional staff to support the local chapters and provide outreach centers, which is the most effective way to provide services to homeless youth.
