STAR Services, LLC is an innovative non-traditional, community-based program that empowers children with emotional and behavioral issues to break through their challenges and achieve greater success at home, at school, and in the community.

STAR Values

  • Positive self-image
  • Individual responsibility
  • Every child's ability to succeed
  • Dignity of all people
  • Respect for all cultures
  • Appreciation of life
  • Positive, caring attitude
  • Self-knowledge & self-development
  • Teamwork & leadership



One of the saddest occurrence I've encountered since I founded Star Services, is that many of these children have never been told by anyone that they're loved. That changes as soon as they enter the Star Services Program.

Many of our children have never been told or shown that they are worthy to be on this earth. They've been told they're no good, they're a burden, they're a disappointment, and they have no value.

We love these children and we get them thinking about what love means. It doesn't take long for the children to start wanting to love us back.

We can’t expect our children to perform and become good citizens if we don’t show them we believe in them. If we really want to keep these children out of the judicial system, we need to show them love and discipline.

STAR Founder and CEO
