Here is a brief look at how Star House is providing youth experiencing homelessness in Central Ohio with hope and a chance to thrive.
About Star House
Star House is a social service agency that operates Central Ohio's only drop-in center for youth, ages 14-24, who are experiencing homelessness. Youth 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 through our partners Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Primary One. In 2020, in partnership with Finance Fund, Star House opened Carol Stewart Village—a neighborhood for emerging adults with on-site access to education and transitional employment resources; mental and physical health care; and intentional social connections through mentoring and opportunities to engage in the Franklinton community.
