MISSION

Help lasts a moment. Hope lasts a lifetime; therefore, our goal is to address the hurts of youth brought on by adverse experiences. We provide healing engagements that edify, enlighten, and empower youth to create change in their lives, families, and communities. 

​​​StandUP! For Change is a social transformation organization endeavoring to bring awareness to the inequities taking place in marginalized communities; primarily in the areas of education, employment, and housing. Our efforts target Cleveland, Ohio where nearly 50% of all children live in poverty.

StandUP! For Change seeks to awaken society to the needs, promise, and values of under-served youth; specifically those who are chronically impoverished, homeless, and/or adjudicated. Encouraging a society that understands and accepts responsibility in meeting the needs of our youngest citizens regardless of race, gender, or economic status. 

We wholeheartedly thank the following Community Partners for their continous support of our work

WHEN WE LIFT, THEY RISE!

VISION

We seek social transformation in under-resourced communities by changing the lives of youth BEFORE they transition into adults.


We strive toward ending the cycle of poverty by creating productive youth dedicated to building strong lives and rebuilding even stronger communities.


We employ a series of powerful initiatives to achieve the objectives of the organization.

ABOUT

StandUP! For Change began as a small neighborhood improvement group filled with residents dissatisfied with the state of communities throughout the City of Cleveland. Focused on making a difference, the resolute residents focused on providing for the direct needs of their fellow community members; devoting their endeavors toward the homeless and chronically impoverished neighborhoods. 

As volunteers continuously addressed the immediate needs of the marginalized, the ever-increasing call  resounded. This realization acted as an impetus to formally establish StandUP! For Change as a non-profit organization in 2012 and receive tax-exempt status from the IRS in 2013.
