Founded in 1963, Starfish Family Services is a community-based nonprofit organization serving thousands of vulnerable children and families annually in Metro Detroit.
Our passion is early childhood development. We strive every day to prepare young children for a successful start to school. Our programs and services uniquely recognize and respect the important role of parents and other caregivers in the long-term success of children
Imagine a community, region, and state where babies are born healthy, and where curious children are arriving at kindergarten doors ready for school and life success. Parents and caregivers are engaged, educated, and meeting the challenge of raising successful adults.
We are ready to make the audacious claim that Detroit is poised to become a city regarded as home to a model of early childhood education excellence.
