STAR was created with the conviction that a hand up – not a hand out – better serves the needs of the people in our community.

Since 1997, STAR of Coastal Georgia has helped transform the lives of over 1,300 individuals by teaching them the necessary skills to become more self-sufficient.

As we explain the important values of accountability and responsibility, our students discover a sense of personal dignity and self-empowerment. We prepare each student for successful employment through a program based on computer, financial and work readiness education.

The success of the STAR program is evidenced by:
