A community of peers, caregivers, and allies that support the hope and healing of young people affected by the stress and stigma of a parent's substance use. 

There are young people whose mental health is being affected by the stress and stigma of a parent's unaddressed trauma and substance use challenges, and parents with substance use challenges who cannot access support. At Starlings Community, we are on a mission to change this
