Doing whatever it takes to lift youth out of homelessness and into a community of hope.
Founded in 2006, Star House operates the nation’s only 24/7 drop-in center for youth experiencing homelessness that hosts continuous best-practice research and the only housing village of its kind in Central Ohio for college-age youth who are exiting homelessness. At Central Ohio's only drop-in center, young people experiencing homelessness, ages 14-24, are provided with immediate access to safety, basic needs, and access to crucial, stabilizing resources.
In addition, Star House, along with the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority and Finance Fund, jointly owns and operates Carol Stewart Village—an affordable neighborhood for youth coming out of homelessness that offers 62 studio apartments and on-site access to a wide array of programs and social services.
