All of Starr’s locations have excellent facilities, and they exist for one sole purpose: to help children overcome their difficult backgrounds and situations so they may reach their full potential. We currently provide services throughout Michigan, with our Albion campus serving as headquarters to our operations. Our campuses provide community-based early intervention, preventative services and specialized residential alternatives to children.
Starr - Albion, MI
Founded by Floyd Starr in 1913, our Albion, MI, campus is the original location of Starr Commonwealth. Having grown from 40 acres and a barn to 350 acres that boast a recreation center, museum, and the Chapel-in-the-Woods, the Albion campus provides residential services managed by Sequel, called Starr Albion Prep. The physical grounds of the Albion campus embody Floyd Starr’s tenet that if you give children a place of beauty in which to live, they will want to extend that to their behaviors and attitudes. With the help of renowned Michigan landscape architects T. Glenn Phillips and Genevieve Gillette, the Albion campus is home to many beautiful specimens of trees, flowering shrubs and outdoor sculpture, as well as a 42-acre lake. Serving as our headquarters, the Albion campus also houses our human resources, finance, marketing and development offices.

Starr - Detroit, MI
Starr Commonwealth and the kids of Detroit share a long history. In fact, 40 percent of the youth in our residential treatment programs in Albion have traditionally come from the Detroit area. In 1987, the question was, “How can we keep these kids from falling through the cracks when they return home to the streets of Detroit?” The answer was Starr Detroit, and a handful of community-based programs designed to help kids transition back into the community, stopping the vicious cycle of abuse, drugs and young parenthood.
