Although I am new to the Starfish family, I have been totally captivated by the warmth and professionalism shown to the clients and visitors. Ann Kalass, CEO, has kept founder Ouida Cash's vision going with her warm and friendly smile and heartfelt commitment to helping disadvantaged children and families reach their full potential!

Starfish has been instrumental in helping secure a fantastic foundation for my family. We have been involved in numerous programs over the last seven years that Starfish provides and don't know exactly where my family and I would be now without them! When you walk into any Starfish building you are greeted with kindness, equality, compassion and joy. This agency truly thinks about the families it serves!

Starfish Family Services is one of the best nonprofits for families within Southeast Michigan; they cater to those in dire need and tailor programs that best fit the public's needs. Everyday children run around the center laughing and learning, and there is no other place I'd rather work with that allows me to see children grow and develop within such a stable environment. Having been raised in a community where education was provided, working with Starfish allowed me to see how hard Inkster had really been hit, and it sparked the desire within me to help be part of the change Inkster needs.

Starfish is an amazing organization. I have volunteered at three other organizations and Starfish is by far the best. They have many programs - all aimed at helping people improve their lives and the lives of their children. They cherish and support their volunteers and go to great lengths to make sure the volunteer assignment fits with the volunteer's interests/skills. You could not find a better place to give back to the community.

Starfish Family Services plays a vital role in the community and for a great number of years they have been dedicated to doing just that! The services they offer help everyone from the little tikes to moms and dads. The staff is always welcoming, knowledgable, and engaged! I just don't know where I would be without "STARFISH FAMILY SERVICES"
