Our Mission

The STARS Resale Shop is completely run on the generous donations of people in the area. 100% of the proceeds stay right here in Wheaton to support the Stars Family Services, especially in support of building permanent residential homes for the STARS. Although the success of our first of such homes, the "Washington House," has been a great encouragement and testament to God's faithfulness in this ministry, the Board has already identified 39 STARS who will need housing immediately or within the next 5 years. We are so grateful to announce the opening of woman's home in early 2015 with a third home scheduled to open later in the year.





Supporting Stars Family Services

Our Stars
Our shop employs some of the STARS participants themselves via a job skills program and runs smoothly thanks to volunteer and employee support. 
Our History
For more than fifty years, the STARS Ministry of College Church in Wheaton has come alongside people with developmental disabilities, ministering to them and their families with the love of Jesus. Over 130 families now participate in some aspect of the STARS ministry.
