Starr Commonwealth is headquartered in Albion, Michigan, on the campus where our roots were first set in 1913.
In addition to our historic Albion campus, we also operate two Behavioral Health Centers in Battle Creek, Michigan and Harper Woods, Michigan, and can be found partnering with organizations and communities across the country and around the world.
Each location and partnership is built on our 100 plus year belief system and values, and is committed to creating positive experiences for all youth to thrive. Whether you come to us or we come to you – we are here to help you see your strengths and the strength in those around you.
Founded by Floyd Starr in 1913, our historic Albion, Michigan campus continues to operate residential services for youth around the state and across the country. The physical grounds of our Albion campus embody one of Uncle Floyd’s key tenets – if you give children a place of beauty in which to live, they will want to extend that to their behaviors and attitudes. From one barn, two boys, 40-acres and an ambitious dream and heartfelt belief in the greatness of children, to a series of cottages and school buildings, hundreds of children, 350 acres, and a beautiful campus that creates countless experiences for our youth to discover their strengths – and to develop new behaviors and attitudes of resilience.
In 2014, Starr entered into a partnership with Sequel Youth and Family Services. Leveraging the strengths of each organization, Starr Albion Prep was created to continue the residential and educational programs while increasing the overall scope of services. It has and continues to be a great partnership – and go Wildcats!
The Albion Campus is also home to Starr’s human resources, finance, marketing and advancement offices, and also features a recreational center, the Chapel-in-the-Woods, Brueckner Museum and Art Gallery, Montcalm Lake, and the original barn and homes of Floyd Starr. It truly is a beautiful place for Starr to call home, and to continue Uncle Floyd’s legacy is an honor we cherish.
