MY CITY IS IN TRANSITION AND I SPARKED THE CHANGE!

ABOUT

Founded in 2010 StandUP! For Change began as a small community 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.

VISION

We seek social transformation in impoverished communities by changing the lives of youth BEFORE they grow into adults. We strive toward ending the cycle of poverty in an effort to create productive citizens dedicated to rebuilding their communities. We employ a series of powerful initiatives to achieve the objectives of the organization.

MISSION

To create sustainable pathways out of poverty for  marginalized youth through education, employment, and housing.
