STAR House seeks to assist Minnesota families in preventing housing
crises by providing safe and effortless childcare services. We will provide a comforting
home-like environment for the children in our care. We will build trust with families to
allow the confidence to place their children with us and access our supportive services. We
acknowledge the bravery of parents who desire to provide the best circumstances,
resources, and opportunities for their children and endeavor to remove the social stigma
against crisis nurseries.
We endeavor, in coordination and collaboration with community partners,
to identify, coordinate, and contribute to meeting the identified needs of children, families,
and the Minnesota community. We will create a network to maximize the strengths of our
organization, the families we serve, the dedicated staff and other valuable community
services to become a village of power. We reach our full potential when we consistently
value children, parents, and staff equally.
We will have a lasting impact on the families, staff and communities we
engage. By creating meaningful connections, building on each other’s unique strengths,
and sharing resources we will grow a village to sustainably uplift all parties for generations
to come. Supporting and facilitating strong family development contributes to the health
and success of the Minnesota community. We will offer parenting and family resources to
help families thrive.
We will become trusted partners with families and staff through sincere engagement, ethical practices and thoughtful decision-making. We will establish a culture which demands the highest standards of transparency and accountability.
We will honor each individual that comes through our doors and care for them like family in our home. Our staff will be supported by knowledgeable and responsive leadership and thoroughly trained to meet our high standards of care. We will whole-heartedly embody our vision in our daily actions. We will proactively engage the Minnesota community to embrace diversity and inclusion as a core institutional value. We will cultivate a shared commitment to diverse and inclusive perspectives and a culturally competent and inclusive environment that respects human differences, dignity, and the well-being of every community member.
