Joblessness, homelessness, mental health needs, medical issues, domestic violence, and the simple need for a break and some rest are all factors that can create overwhelming stress for families and impact their lives. When these crises arise, many parents reach out to family, friends, or other reliable individuals who can help. However, there are families that do not have a trusted friend or family member to provide care for their children. This is where the STAR House can step in as a trusted ally to provide free, safe, overnight care for children and supportive services for caregivers. You can be a part of the solution!

During our founding process, STAR House benefits from caring individuals, like you, to work with us to create safe options for families in Ramsey County. Our opportunities to contribute time are virtual, fulfilling and flexible. Your time will positively affect families in Ramsey County for generations to come!

We have openings in the following committees:

- FUNDRAISING: We are looking for a volunteer to join our Fundraising Committee as we work toward the exciting goal of opening our doors. Experience in development, especially in the areas of donor relations and donor recruitment, would be ideal." Training will be provided.

- Administrative: We are looking for a volunteer to help support our volunteer committees through independent administrative work. Tasks will include data gathering and organization, campaign support, volunteer onboarding, etc. Training will be provided.

As we get closer to opening the doors of STAR House, we will also have more hands-on positions available, including direct care, cooks, hospitality, cleaning, and many more.

Mission Statement

The Ramsey Crisis Nursery exists to provide a temporary home away from home for children and supportive services to uplift and strengthen the entire family.

Description

As a nonprofit corporation, STAR House will offer free, safe, holistic, and trauma-informed care to children in an overnight care facility. Parents/guardians will become a part of our support network, and be encouraged to care for themselves and/or receive services to overcome barriers or life stressors they may be facing such as housing instability, financial instability, inadequate childcare, domestic violence, etc. We will partner with other community services to make available the resources, care, and support that the family desires. We will create a safe home away from home for children in early childhood.
