A Dream Becomes a Reality - Grand Opening Celebration

Co-founders Graci and Dennis McGillicuddy saw their vision become a reality at the Grand Opening of the Campus of Hope and Healing. All Star Children's Foundation is building a brighter future for children in foster care on their campus which includes a pediatric treatment and research center, six individually-licensed foster homes, a clubhouse, and a beautiful oasis where children in foster care live and participate in the six core programs offered on the campus.

The Journey Can Be Long and Difficult

We have created a place for children to begin their journey to Hope and Healing. The All Star Children's Campus is a refuge for children - a place where healing occurs, hope is restored, and spirits are renewed.

Campus of Hope and Healinga campus truly built on love

The construction of the Campus, which includes a 13,000 square foot pediatric treatment and research center, 6 single family 5-bedroom foster homes, and a 3,000 square foot clubhouse and tutoring center are now complete.

Our 6 Core Programs

Each of these programs is being implemented and researched in an effort to create effective intervention models that can be replicated in other communities.

These programs are being implemented and evaluated by an exceptionally dedicated group of staff with advanced training and expertise in trauma who are united around their commitment to improving the experiences and outcomes of children and families in foster care.
