Star House is a 24/7 agency that operates Central Ohio's only drop-in center for youth, ages 14-24, who are experiencing homelessness. The agency offers young people a safe respite from the streets, immediate access to basic needs and connections to stabilizing resources, such as housing, transportation, health care, employment, education, addiction services, legal aid, government benefits, ID cards and more. In 2020, in partnership with Finance Fund, Star House will open Carol Stewart Village—a neighborhood for emerging adults with efficiency apartments and on-site access to transitional jobs, education, health care, and social connections through mentorships, peer support and community engagement options.
Update: Star House is typically open 24/7, 365 days a year.
Due to COVID-19, as of March 30, Star House's drop-in center will be open for services between 7pm and 11am.
