Financial circumstances can be an obstacle for some who want to experience Star, and first-time participants may initially feel reluctant to make the investment of money and time. Scholarships help Star fulfill its mission of: “Providing a safe nurturing environment to experience healing that will transform ones’ life”.

You can make a difference! General student aid help ensure that workshop tuition and accommodation funds are available to individuals who want the Star experience. It is important to be able to extend the incredible benefits of a STAR Retreat to a wider community.

Statistics show that 14.2% of the U.S. population is currently experiencing psychological crisis. Jane found her way to STAR in 2016.

“I still can’t believe that I am well!, Jane writes. “I was so sick that I wasn’t going to make it. It just wasn’t worth the fight anymore. I had given up and was on my way out, always thinking of the best way to go, that would be the easiest on my kids. I just wasn’t good for them and didn’t see any light at the end of the tunnel. Making the difficult decision to go to STAR was a last ditch effort that I told myself I would give 110% effort to get all that I could from the retreat. I really didn’t think anything would help me. People need to know that My journey at STAR truly saved my life. I got ME back, my kids and husband got ME back! I am so happy. Now I want to live more than anything.”

This is one of the many testimonials the STAR staff receives after a STAR retreat. These experiences validate our work. It is truly gratifying to share in each unique journey to recovery. Due to the lack of resources, there are only a few scholarships available at each retreat. The typical scholarship requested is from $800 – $1500. With donations like yours, we can serve larger numbers of people in crisis so that they may experience the transformation and healing they need.

We hope that you will continue to donate and to refer your family, friends or clients to STAR to experience the healing and hope for their lives as so many of you have. We want as many as possible to experience STAR firsthand as we continue the work that Barbara has created. A heart felt thank you for your continued support of STAR!
