We still are supporting Star House, an organization helping homeless youth in
Columbus, OH.

Star House provides  a safe haven from the streets, access to shower and laundry facilities, food, clothing and hygiene items and a sense of hope for up to 60 kids a day between the ages of 14 to 24 years. There is also assistance from staff and volunteers for obtaining healthcare, employment and other community services.

The center is open 24/7 and is doing amazing work to support these kids who are otherwise neglected and often invisible.

Next Level Gives is committed to bringing Christmas to Star House this year with a tree and decorations, a chorus, presents, celebration, food, supplies, and more...as much as we can assemble.

Beyond the Holiday season Next Level Gives is committed to supporting Star House throughout the coming year. Check back with us to see how the project evolves.
