In the HCEF “Stand Up for Homeless Children” performance art installation, volunteers stand for 15 minutes in silence holding the drawing of the face of a child in front of their own face to represent the 3,000 Allegheny County children who were identified as homeless last year. (source: PA Department of Education). The purpose of the Stand Up is to raise awareness and spark conversation on the issue of child homelessness.
Perhaps the Stand Up is best described in photos. Click the photos below for galleries by year.
