The STAR Family Center
A Division of Halifax Urban Ministries
340 North Street Daytona Beach FL 32114
The STAR Family Center, located at 340 North Street, is a hub of activity 5 days a week. Through these doors walk people from all over the United States with something very important in common, homelessness.
The center opens its doors at 8:00 in the morning and begins to assist people with issues such as hunger, placing phone calls or picking up mail, looking for a ticket out of town, need of medical attention, help looking for a job, work boots to get a better job, assistance with prescriptions, a hot shower, clean clothes or just the chance to get out of the weather.
In the last year, Nurse Jenny and rotating doctors from Halifax Hospital have seen over 1,100 clients and have diverted over 600 from going to the Emergency Room (due to getting their needs met at the Center) - an estimated savings of over $120,000 to local tax payers.
To serve homeless people by providing resources, opportunities, and hope.
