The Structured Therapeutic Living (STL) Program at Starr Commonwealth's Columbus site is aimed at youth who are aging out of the social services system, including foster care and residential treatment, and who do not have the viable family support needed to help them make a successful transition to adulthood. To serve a growing number of at-risk youth in Columbus and Franklin County, Ohio, Starr will expand its STL program and provide a much-needed step for those who require more intensive one-on-one counseling as they begin life on their own. Starr provides wrap around services for males and females, ages 15 through 17, through its MyPlace program. NCA/NCF
