Welcome to S.T.A.R. Central

STAR Central is a unique Center that offers a variety of Peer Support groups for adults with SMI. It is a place for Peers to build relationships and grow as individuals. We offer a variety of recovery groups and community outings and we also encourage our members to give back to the community by participating in volunteer opportunities. We are a Peer focused Center where staff is able to reach out and work on a one-on-one basis with our members.  It is a place for our members to feel safe and share in their daily recovery in a supportive atmosphere.   STAR Central offers a continental breakfast, hot lunch and afternoon snack for our members that participate in a morning recovery group and complete a chore at the center.  Each of our members has an opportunity to earn S.T.A.R dollars (house money) by participating in a chore.  These S.T.A.R. dollars can be spent for off-site activities (such as our weekly bowling) and within our weekly clothing closet and food share programs.  STAR Central has a laundry facility that is free for our members.

STAR Central is located in the downtown Phoenix area outreaching to a diverse population of individuals. We are easily accessible via the light rail and/or public bus transportation.  Please take a moment to review our calendar for the activities that interest you.
