|OSU Star House
Star House is a 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. We serve youths ages 14-24, one of the most vulnerable populations worldwide. It is estimated that 1200-1500 homeless youth and youth in transition exist in Central Ohio. These youths live directly on the streets or in abandoned buildings, or couch surf among friendsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ homes. Most are disconnected from their families, and all are under served by communities, left to fend for themselves on the fringes of our society. With limited rights and privacy, they have little access to services and supports needed to survive independently. These youth are at high risk for human trafficking, HIV and Hepatitis C infections, and victimization. The primary reasons for being homeless include: A conflictual family environment, physical and/or sexual abuse Youth have been asked to leave home because their parents are unwilling or unable to care for them Homeless youth statistics: Over 50% report childhood physical or sexual abuse 50% report physical/sexual and or other criminal victimization in the past 12 months 12 times more likely to die than housed youth are Almost half (41.6%) have children 66% African American, 20% White, non-Hispanic, 12% other 47% Female 30% have children 20% report being under age 18 38% report ever having stayed in a shelter 48% report a history of foster care/being a ward of the state
