Background Statement

The Orange County Chapter

The SUFK – Orange County Chapter, launched in 2003 by committed volunteers, currently provides four programs to address youth homelessness in Orange County: Street Outreach, Outreach Centers, Mentoring, Apartment Support.

· Street Outreach: occurs on a weekly basis in 5 cities. Well-trained volunteers identify homeless kids to:

• Provide vital information regarding available resources to meet their needs, including housing, education, employment, medical, mental health and other support services;

Provide food, clothing and hygiene products;

Provide harm reduction counseling to address the risks associated with street life.

Once trust has been established, kids are paired with a mentor and/or referred to the chapter Outreach Center.

The Outreach Centers:In September 2013, with a space currently donated by The Anaheim Independancia Center our program is now open 3 nights a week and provides homeless kids and at risk youth ages 12-18 with, meals, access to medical care, internet, after school homework assistance/tutoring and job employment preparation. We have 2 programs running side by side: (1) Regular mentoring and tutoring, (2) S.T.E.M. Program which teaches Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

In 2017, we partnered with the Anaheim School District and launched an Entrepreneur program. Since the launch we’ve taught entrepreneurship in two Junior High Schools and as of January 2019 we are teaching entrepreneurship at Magnolia High School, Anaheim CA.

In March 2015 we opened a second outreach center catering to young adults ages 18-24 in Huntington Beach. This center provides recovery coaching, mentoring, life skills and employment preparation to young adults who may have substance abuse issues, are homeless or at risk.

Mentoring: Youth are paired with two mentors who meet with them weekly. During mentoring sessions, youth develop a goal plan and mentors help them prioritize and execute that plan. Mentors act as guides, role models, and accountability partners for these youth. The mentoring program has a definitive plan for meeting our mission of ending the cycle of youth homelessness through its apartment support, education support, and life skills programs.

In August 2018, we launched our first College Mentoring Program at Saddleback College assisting young adults who are either housing insecure or homeless to find housing, and resources so that they can successfully graduate college.

In February of 2019, we launched our In School Mentoring Program at Valley Vista High in the Huntington Beach School District. Here, we’re helping youth navigate life while working towards graduation and a blueprint for post high school.

Apartment/Housing Support:Launched in December 2010, this program offers homeless young adults (ages 18-24) the support they need to find, furnish, and maintain a home while working with StandUp For Kids mentors to achieve the educational, career, and personal goals necessary to live independently.

StandUp For Kids greatest needs are continued financial support so that we can continue to provide the following programs and services;
 
Street Outreach $38,600 
 
Outreach Centers $56,730

Additionally, we need human capital. We are always looking for volunteers to join our leadership team, mentor youth, assist with events. 

CEO Statement

We live in a society where violence and abuse are increasingly common within families and communities. The hopelessness that kids express about their lives and futures reflects a lack of self-esteem and confidence in their own ability to cope and/or succeed. Imagine how overwhelming this would seem for youth that have no one in whom they can confide. StandUp For Kids is a special organization that has seized the opportunity to help homeless and at-risk children by establishing and launching programs and resources.

Programs


StandUp For Kids

StandUp For Kids has several different programs for at-risk youth, including: 1. A nearly all volunteer led street outreach program targeting runaway, homeless and street-dependent youth; 2. Two youth drop-in-centers; 3. A mentoring program designed to match up youth with role models that help them create, prioritize, and accomplish goals; 4. Apartment support program to assist youth transitioning from life on the streets into a room, apartment or group home.
 
In Anaheim, we also have a youth entrepreneur program, at Magnolia High, which teaches youth step by step how to create and launch their own business. We also have a S.T.E.M. Program in our Anaheim Center, taught by a volunteer that has her doctorate in Science. 
Budget  $603,606.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Mentoring
Population Served Homeless At-Risk Populations Adolescents Only (13-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  Short term success is measured simply by how many youth we contact on the streets, through our street outreach program, drop in center and through engagement in mentoring.
Program Long-Term Success 

Long term success can look very different for each youth when working with youth on the street. Ultimately, long term success is fulfilling StandUp For Kids' mission of exiting youth out of street life. This is achieved in a number of way's. Teaching youth to become self sufficient, reunification with families, education and housing assistance. Many youth also keep in contact for aftercare and to give back through volunteerism. Some youth check in to tell us they are doing well as a result of an StandUp For Kids program or a program in the community.

Program Success Monitored By  We maintain case files for all of the youth we see. Each month volunteer mentors report services provided,Youth who exit the street are documented and sent by email communication to the Outreach Director and Executive Director. Other information includes how many youth are being mentored, bus passes distributed, HIVSTI tests completed, prevention materials distributed and jobs and education referrals. Service reports are sent to our national office monthly
Examples of Program Success  The evidence that we use to gain an understanding of success is varied. Sometimes it may be a behavioral change, addressing a warrant, or changing high risk behaviors. On the streets, we see success in small ways, such as improvement in hygiene, engagement with a medical health professional, or using prevention materials. Evidence of success relies greatly in the self reporting and observed behavior of each individual youth. Ultimately, when a youth exits the streets we define that as the greatest success because this leads to the stabilization a youth needs for continued success.
