The Stand Up for the Homeless SMORE

Reasons to Support The Homeless

I feel the need to support the homeless because seeing them on the street makes me feel sad for them. I know that sometimes it may be their own fault perhaps they could have stayed in school for a better job, but I just cannot grasp the feeling that they do not have a way to keep a home. Nearly 25% suffer from mental illness.

Stand Up for Kids

"Stand up stand tall." The mission is to end the cycle of youth homelessness and homeless people overall. Volunteers work directly with the homeless population and otherwise help homeless and street kids improve their lives. It is a non-profit organization.Thirteen kids die on the street everyday from abuse, disease and suicide.That's 5,000 kids a year.
