  1. I believe my Mother stayed at the home in the 30’s. She was born in 1930 and her Mom passed when she was four. My granfather had 5 children to raise and could not alone so the kids were sent to a youth home. Which my mom called the PCH Protestant Youth Home. Is the original building still up or has it been torn down and rebuilt after it was taken over by the Star Foundation? Is there any books written on it or any old history available?

    • Sue,
      Are you referring to the Children’s Home of Detroit in Grosse Pointe Woods? There are several buildings on that campus and Starr has kept them intact. You could contact Amy Reimann, Director of Archives and Alumni Affairs, who might have more information for you. She can be reached at reimanna@starr.org.

  2. I’m writing a paper on a person that made an impact and I decided to write it on Floyd Starr. I was wondering if you could give me any info on any impact that he did or something along those lines.
    If you could that would be great…when I get more info, I will think of more questions to ask and keep in touch.
    Thank you.

  3. I would really like to thank you for the information packet that you supplied for me. It was very helpful and will really help me to write my senior paper! 🙂 Thank you again so much. I can’t wait to spread the word of Starr Commonwealth and hope to make a difference.

  4. I just wanted to share with everyone how grateful I am for Starr Commonwealth.
    As a very troubled young man, I was sent to the Albion campus in 1992. I was 12 years old. Having come from a devistating childhood, I was headed down a path of utter destruction very early in life.
    The two years that I spent at Starr, were the greatest years that I had ever known up until that point in my life. For the first time in my short existence, I felt safe, loved, cared about, and understood. The staff saw past the anger and the hate, and they saw past the trouble.
    Starr helped me to find myself, and to start on a path to becoming the man that I wanted to be. I owe everything that I am in this life to Starr. They gave me love where I had never had any, and that gave me everything I needed.
    Today I am 32 years old, married 10 years, and I have three beautiful children. Two sons, 8 and 5, and one daughter who is 3.
    I have been blessed with a successfully career that has given me the opertunity to provide for my family, and I could not ask for more in this life.
    I draw strength as a man and as a father, from the childhood that I had. To have known no love as a child, has pushed me to make sure that not a moment goes by, that my children do not know that they are forever loved.
    Starr will forever hold a special place in my heart. Thank you.

  5. My name in Timothy Hubbard, and I just wanted to take a few minutes to share my story with who ever may be reading this.
    I came to the Albion campus in 1996 at the age of 16. I came to Starr as a transfer from another residential boys home, not related to Starr Commenwealth. I had been having allot of problems with the program at the other boys home, and my parents felt that Starr was a better fit for my needs.
    I came to Starr a very angry teenager. I was quick with my temper and attitude, and I acted out in any way that I saw fit. I believed that the world had simply thrown me away. I felt that I had no purpous in life. I felt alone, unloved and abondoned.
    I used these feeling as a means to justify my behaviors while I was at Starr, especially if those behaviors where negative in nature.
    Over the course of the two years that I was at Starr, things begain to change in me. The walls that I had spent a life time building up to protect myself, begain to crumble. I begain to build relationships with the others boys in my cottage, and with the staff. I begain to trust that these people really did care about me, and only had my best interest at heart. Where I once believed that all staff members were simply out to make my life misrible, I begain to see that they truly wanted to see me succeed in life.
    Unfortunantly for me, I was never able to graduate Starr. I turned 18 while in the program, and was sent to supervised independent living in Yipsilanti Michigan.
    Not being able to graduate the program has to this day been one of my greatest regrets. I truly wanted then, and still do now, to have graduated the program.
    That aside, I have gone on to have a very successful life. My twentys were hard for me, but I got through it. I have been determined in life to be successful to honor not only myself, but everyone at Starr who gave so much of their time for me.
    Today I have a successful carrier as a Chef. I’m married to a wonderful wife, who loves and supports me in everything I do, and a beautiful 14 year old daughter.

    Thank You Start Commonwealth

    Timothy A. Hubbard.
