Dear Friends of Star House,


Thanks to your support, Star House continues to provide youth experiencing homelessness in Central Ohio with safe respite and a chance to thrive during the COVID-19 pandemic. So far this year, Star House has served 489 individuals and, in some cases, their small children at our drop-in center with 12,847 visits. Star House's drop-in center guests are provided access to safe respite from the streets, immediate access to basic needs and connections to stabilizing resources, such as housing, transportation, mental and physical health care, employment, education, addiction services, legal aid, government benefits, ID cards and more. In addition, 52 of 62 apartments have been filled at Carol Stewart Village—Star House and Finance Fund's affordable, supportive neighborhood for youth, ages 18 to 24.

Lastly, we are excited to announce that Star House has now resumed 24/7 operations, which ensures that young people, ages 14-24, have round-the-clock access to safety and stabilizing resources.
