One trait that makes a star in the celestial sphere unique is its brightness. Each star's brightness as seen from the earth is dependent on luminosity and distance. In darkness the night skies give birth and reflect their brilliance and powerful serenity. Therefore, in the middle of night when you search for a light there they are the brightest stars.
In America’s residential treatment facilities (Children's Homes/Orphanages), Foster Family Agencies and Group Homes there are thousands of children who have been abused, neglected and abandoned. Each youth has a tiny light ( a bright star) that dims and flickers. These children have a severely damaged sense of self and self worth, and in many cases an inability to trust and bond with others.
"I have a Dream."
Since children are America’s greatest resources and future, nothing on this earth could be more precious and of greater value then to strive with endless effort to build self-esteem, self confidence and self worth in abused, abandoned and neglected children thriving in foster care in our communities, to set goals, achieve and dream big to become productive and mentally healthy individuals in society, reaching their highest potential.
Welcome to the website of The Brightest Star, Inc. It is our dream and sole purpose to draw out and make bright that tiny light in youth who have been neglected, abused and orphaned thriving in or "aged out" in foster care.
With direct assistance in the areas of building dreams and self-esteem through providing educational, cultural enrichment activities, emotional, transitional, financial, counseling and mentoring services they will shine as Brightest Stars.
We need your support to help build dreams and the self-esteem of children and teens thriving in foster care. It is the social vaccine required for each child's mental health wellness.
