Star Community Home
Thanks to generous funding from 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.
More than 85% of homeless families across the nation are headed by single mothers. 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.
Star's single-parent family housing stabilization success rate: 97%.
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.”
