Volunteer Spotlight

Star House received an overwhelming amount of support this holiday season from our generous community, which left our warehouse in need of sorting and organizing. We would like to extend a huge thank you to groups from Abercrombie & Fitch, Nationwide Children's Hospital's Residency Program, and Columbus Gives Back for helping us catch up on sorting the donations we've received. We deeply appreciate your service!

 

Monetary Donations

Now more than ever, Star House would benefit greatly from discretionary general operating funding to support our day-to-day services for youth. Please consider making a monetary donation. If you're interested in seeing just how far your donation can go towards helping youth experiencing homelessness, then please see the infographic below!
