About

We invite you to visit the Star Community Home to learn about the program and clients we serve. You will have the opportunity to hear from the program director about how we are effectively improving the lives of our clients and positively touching our communities through measurable outcomes. We will discuss the opportunities for volunteer engagement at Star Community Home and answer any questions you may have as you consider getting involved as a volunteer.

Thanks to generous funding from the Salesforce Foundation and the generous support of Little Children's Aid, Star Community Home gives families a safe place to live while developing a plan to secure stability and housing.

Families typically arrive at Star Community Home in crisis: homeless, fearful, hungry, lonely, desperate and penniless. The home immediately offers a safe place to live, providing nutritious meals and beginning to build the skills necessary for a self-sufficient future. Families exit Star with housing, a stable source of income, and the skills they need to establish permanent exits from homelessness.

Single-parent family housing stabilization success rate: 97%

More than 85% of homeless families across the nation are headed by single mothers.

San Francisco Chronicle columnist Heather Knight has described Star Community Home as a "successful, creative answer to a perplexing problem" that has been "universally hailed as a model for solving family homelessness."
