StandUp for Kids

StandUp For Kids (SUFK) is a national, all-volunteer organization with
active programs in 30 U.S. cities. We help youth who are on their own,
having run away from or been kicked out of an unsafe (usually abusive)
home. They are trying to restart their lives.

The Silicon Valley chapter is about to open an OUTREACH CENTER where
homeless and at risk youth can come after school to hang out safely, get a
hot meal, use computers, take a shower, do laundry, and talk to our
volunteer mentors. you can make a real difference in these kids’ lives by
being a caring and trustworthy adult for them.

The information above can be found on the official website of StandUp for Kids. For more details about the organization and to find out how you can volunteer, please visit their website: http://www.standupforkids.org/SiliconValley/default.aspx
