THE NEED

The over 63,000 children and youth in care in Canada often grow up in difficult and damaging circumstances. Sometimes this means that being homeless is better than being at home. Compounding this trauma is the sense of isolation that comes from not having the stable support of friends or family that most of us take for granted.

THE MOVEMENT

Normal shouldn’t mean living on the streets is safer than living at home. It’s time to Stand Up for Kids and say that it’s not OK for children and youth in care across Canada to live with the threat of abuse and neglect through no fault of their own.
