Mission Statement

StandUp For Kids is dedicated to improving the lives of homeless and at-risk youth and young adults. The mission of StandUp For Kids is to end the cycle of youth homelessness throughout the United States.
 
This mission is carried out every day in cities across America through our national volunteer/staff force, whose on-the-streets outreach efforts find, stabilize and help homeless and street kids improve their lives by providing and connecting them with life-saving services. The organization's mission is furthered through deterrence and resource programs provided in schools and via the internet. All facets of this mission are guided by the mandate that our volunteers tell kids they care about them and then, at every turn, prove it.
 

Background Statement

Our ongoing mission is to end the cycle of youth homelessness. We serve
unaccompanied homeless and at-risk youth – and young parents with children of their own – up to their 25th birthday. To do this, we have built four core programs: ​Street Outreach​, ​Outreach Centers​, ​Mentoring​, and ​Housing Support​.
 
Our service model follows national guidelines set by the US Interagency Council on Homelessness in
providing stable housing, permanent connections, education and employment, and social and emotional well-being to the youth we serve.
 
Our overall goal is to prepare youth to engage constructively in their communities and develop self-assurance by addressing both their basic needs and the four core elements of positive youth development: a sense of competence, a sense of usefulness, a sense of belonging, and a sense of power.
 
The objectives that allow us to meet this goal are to (a) provide intensive case management with a positive role model and mentor, (b) provide support in meeting basic needs of food, clothing and shelter; (c) meet medical and mental health needs, (d) provide supportive services as needed including group counseling, employment coaching, and life skills training; and (e) provide transitional support once the youth enter a permanent housing situation


 


Impact Statement

In 2018,

1. Orange County volunteers logged 6,300 incidences of support and
2. Over 4,300 hours of service
3. Provided 88 youth with housing stipends
4. Provided over 3,400 meals
5. Served 477 un-duplicated youth 

Needs Statement

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
 
Housing $47,125
 
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. Three youth outreach centers; 3. A mentoring program designed to match up youth with role models that help them create, prioritize, and accomplish goals; 4. Housing 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. Our S.T.E.M. Program is housed in our Anaheim Center. Additionally, we partnered with Valley Vista High School in the Huntington Beach School District and we offer in school mentoring to at risk and homeless youth during lunch hours.
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.
