During these 48 hours, homeless youth will be provided hot meals, a place to shower, clothing, medical attention and other support services and activities.
“For over 25 years StandUp For Kids has been a consistent resource for at-risk and homeless youth. These teens escaped abusive environments and need help. Our chapters and volunteers nationwide provide immediate assistance and a network of services to move and influence homeless youth towards self-sustaining, productive lives based in a safe home of their own,” said Mike Zelnio, StandUp For Kids Board Chairman.
“We’re very grateful for the incredible support we’ve had for our 48 Hours event,” said Brian Haslip, a former street kid who now works with StandUp For Kids. “But there are more than 1.5 million homeless youth in the U.S. today, all of whom need and deserve help. StandUp For Kids volunteers will continue to work for as long as it takes to help all the young people we locate.”
