Statement from Dean Cheryl Achterberg:
“We are excited to share that Star House is now owned and operated by Star House Foundation, an Ohio nonprofit corporation [exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and independent of The Ohio State University.
“This is a natural step in the continuing evolution of this incredible community asset. Star House is a success story that originated as a research project at The Ohio State University and evolved into a nationally recognized model for excellence in research and service.
“Star House is now operated by an independent nonprofit so that it may continue to address community needs, find innovative partners to extend operations cost-efficiently and draw upon a broader range of financial support. Ohio State continues to focus on research that serves the Star House mission.
“As of July 1, 2017, all gifts and donations in support of Ohio State’s research related to homeless youth should be made directly to The Ohio State University Foundation’s Homeless Youth Research Fund (Fund number: 315804). All gifts and donations in support of the operations of Star House should be made directly to Star House Foundation.”
