Volunteers working in our warehouse help by processing donated items. This essentially means sorting and organizing clothing, shoes and other items in an orderly fashion so that others will know where to locate them when needed. Volunteers working in the warehouse must be at least 16 years of age; Those ages 16 or 17 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

This is an ongoing opportunity. Scheduling is flexible with evening and weekend hours available. Most groups choose to work in 2-hour shifts, but it can be any length of time you'd prefer.

For safety and comfort, we recommend that you:

  • Wear closed-toe shoes
  • Wear weather-appropriate clothing (preferably in layers) as the warehouse environment can sometimes be unpredictably hot or cold
  • Bring a water bottle

Thank you, in advance, for your support of Central Ohio youth who are experiencing homelessness!

Mission Statement

Provide youth experiencing homelessness with a safe respite from the streets and connect them with a chance to thrive.

Description

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. At our drop-in center, 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, health care, employment, education, addiction services, legal aid, government benefits, ID cards and more. In addition, along with Finance Fund and the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA), Star House operates Carol Stewart Village (CSV)-a neighborhood for young adults, ages 18-24, with on-site programs and services.
