As a Director of a Non Profit Organization that provides services to young women and their children who are homeless, in foster-care, or in need of services, you can imagine how I am always looking for resources for these young ladies.
STAR Boutique continues to be a blessing to us at all times. When we are in need of clothing, prom dresses, beauticians for an event, or just a person for our young ladies to talk with in a time of crisis.
I can remember a young lady in one of our RHY Residential programs that gave up on school, and basically trying to fit in with her peers from a school perspective. I suggested she get a "makeover" with STAR Boutique, and a whole new world opened up for that young lady. She was pampered, when trying on clothes the staff at SB gave her a runway, and made her feel so special.
This young lady attended a workshop with the Director of Community Engagement at SB, and once she completed that workshop the young lady stated "I am beautiful, and I can do anything".
I am happy to say that a result of the above experience, I know the young lady has graduated HS and gone on to college.
Star Boutique is an amazing organization, and the work they do with young ladies will continue to be a life changing event.
I am proud to say that I have been blessed to have volunteered at some of their events, and I always leave feeling fulfilled that some young lady will be our next President.
Star Boutique should be #1 on your Top Rated List.
I love and support them with all my heart.
This is an amazing and dedicated organization. I have never worked with such caring individuals, from the founder, to the assistant director, to every staff volunteer and board members. Everyone gets in to get the job done, and everyone has the same objective in mind, "making young adults feel pretty, proud, and important. Everyone gives up time, energy, and sometimes money, but whatever it is it is done with skill and heart.
I would rate this nonprofit a 10 star, but since that does not exist in this rating I give them the highest 5-star rating you have. Danielle and Tanesha compliment each other, from a work perspective and it is that outpouring umbrella that they work under is why everyone who comes in contact with this organization feels the love and dedication and basically gets under the umbrella with them,
I wish them nothing but continued success, and as an non-profit organization that utilizes Star Boutique to assist our young ladies on a regular basis, I say "Job Well Done".
I just completed my 4th time volunteering with this amazing organization. The work they do within the community of young women currently in transitional housing makes the girls feel seen and appreciated. Seeing the smile on their faces when they walk away with a new do, nails, and outfits truly fills your heart. This organization opens doors to these young women that expands their perspective on careers and self esteem. I've volunteered chaperoning the ladies as they spoke with young professional of color at Estee Lauder to helping setup the boutique for back to school and Prom events. The experiences they provide to these young women run the gamut. When you choose to volunteer with them you know your presence is felt leaving a forever impact on the lives of these young ladies and the people running Star Boutique.
WOW! The Star Boutique is such a Unique organization! For 6 years I have watched 100's of girls recieve pampering and mentoring from the organization. This organization puts love into every boutique they curate, the girls leave smiling wider and feeling fuller. I am very excited to be a founding board member and look forward to supporting hundreds of more girls !
I absolutely fell in love with this organization! Such powerful women setting good examples for teenage girls. The shopping experience allowed the young women to be expressive and feel amazing! I'm excited to be apart of future events!
The work that the STAR Boutique does is more than simply makeovers for a day, but rather talks to the changing the ways that girls see themselves both inside AND out. The volunteers are stupendous and the experience is luxe, certainly, but its the message that strikes a chord. "Looking beyond the physical attire that the Boutique provides, our primary mission is to promote confidence, empowerment and sisterhood. The Star Boutique is a transformative space that allows girls to shine beyond their circumstances." And, that, they definitely do!
I have only had the opportunity to volunteer with this organization once, but I've donated to them on multiple occasions. I love the work that they are doing and it is truly needed. This organization and empowers teenage girls in a unique way. Keep up the good work!
Star Botique is well organized non-profit organization. I have been a supporter of Star Botique for over a year making both monetary and material donations. I have been able to directly see the beneficiaries and impact of my donations. The founder, Danielle Skeen tirelessly works with her board, volunteers and supporters to flawlessly execute each and every donation drive and event put together for her Star Members. There's a reason why this organization received national recognition on ABC Nightly News. Star Botique has a valuable and clear mission and is changing the lives of very special young women every day.
