Columbus Gives Back is thrilled to become more involved with Star House and to support their efforts reconnecting homeless and transitional youth in Central Ohio! Due to the nature of some of their programs and activities interacting with these youth, training is required before volunteers can interact with kids.
What: We will be sorting donations and organizing the warehouse attached to the Star House. Those who have completed the orientation and background check may spend time inside the house as well.
Where: Star House, 1220 Corrugated Way, Columbus, OH 43201
When: Saturday, January 19th, 11am-1pm
Event Leaders: Diana@columbusgivesback.org and Stephanie@columbusgivesback.org
#SocialTwist: Please join us afterwards for food and drinks and fun with other cool volunteers like yourselves!
About Star House: Star House is the only 24/7 drop-in center for homeless youth in Central Ohio. We help transitional youth get connected and reconnected with the community. Star House offers a safe place for homeless youth to seek services and begin to establish trust in order to access stabilizing resources such as housing, counseling, and employment opportunities. Because most services are not all within geographic proximity of a homeless youth, Star House provides a distinctive opportunity for those youth to receive integrated behavioral, social, and healthcare services all at one site.
About #CbusGivesBack: Columbus Gives Back coordinates group volunteer events with local non-profits, organizes philanthropic happy hours to raise support and awareness for our non-profit partners, and participates in other philanthropic events while emphasizing our social twist: to have fun with volunteers new and old during and after events in the hopes of creating a culture of community engagement amongst our target audience of young professionals.
