Providing safe haven so all children, no matter the journey, can flourish

In response to an urgent request from the U.S. federal government, Starr Commonwealth is opening its Albion campus to help alleviate the developing humanitarian challenge at the southern border. A leader in healing trauma and building resilience in children, Starr has signed a facilities agreement to allow the Administration for Children and Families to utilize its 350-acre campus as a safe haven. ACF intends to provide temporary shelter for up to 240 unaccompanied migrant children as it works to unite them with their family or sponsors. The why is simple and can be traced back to Starr's roots: There are children in need of a secure place, a safe bed and a beautiful space. Starr is opening its arms and hearts to them, and we would be honored if you joined us.

PAE has been retained by the federal government to manage the ongoing operations of caring for the children who have sought temporary shelter on the Starr campus. The organization has a successful 65-year track record as a government contractor supporting federal initiatives. PAE is seeking to hire team members who will provide direct childcare services. You can review and apply for a PAE position here.

“I think of my own children and the many wonderful opportunities they have been given. It makes me want the same for all children. This is what attracted me to Starr. [Their] mission to create positive experiences so that all children, families, and communities flourish continues to speak to my heart.”

Gregg Beeg President & CEO, Oaklawn

“Oaklawn has many values in common with Starr Commonwealth. We strive to heal those around us and we want to see our communities flourish. We cannot reach our mission alone and it is imperative
that we have these types of strong community relationships and partnerships.”

“One of my heroes, Mahatma Gandhi, said: ‘I finally found myself when I lost myself in the service of others.’ These words ring true for me also. It is an honor and a blessing to lose myself in support of
the young people at Starr Commonwealth. Nothing makes me happier.”
