Our STAR Youth program is here to support children and teens who have experienced family separation (adoption, foster care, kinship care) by providing an opportunity for friendship and community in a safe, supportive space. Our STAR (Supported, Thriving, Authentic & Resilient) Youth Program is grounded in the belief that youth who have experienced family separation deserve a safe, inclusive, affirming, and friendly place where they can build healthy relationships and be supported in positive identity development. Research shows that youth who forge friendships and other supportive relationships are more involved in school and have higher self-perceived social acceptance. There is no cost to families to participate.
