Dear Friends of Star House,

So far this year, Star House has served 560 individual guests and their small children at our drop-in center with 16,880 visits. Star House's drop-in center guests are provided access to food, clothing, hygiene items, laundry facilities, showers and a safe place to be. Beyond basic needs, our clinical team provides therapy and case management, and partner agencies provide on-site and community-based access to stabilizing resources, such as housing, transportation, employment, education, addiction services, legal aid, government benefits, ID cards and health care. In addition, along with Finance Fund and the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA), Star House continues to serve youth at Carol Stewart Village—a neighborhood for young adults, ages 18-24, with on-site programs and services.
