MountainStar's 20th Anniversary

This year, MountainStar is celebrating 20 years of service to babies and toddlers in our community! We are so grateful and offer our sincere thanks to all of our supporters for 20 years of love, kindness, and care!

Launching services in 2001, MountainStar now has programs in Bend, Redmond, Madras, Prineville, and La Pine. MountainStar would like to expresses our gratitude to the many staff, board members, volunteers, donors, and community partners that have provided critical support to serve the vulnerable babies and toddlers across our community.  

In honor of our 20 years of dedication, we are asking you to ensure our services remain free and grow with the needs of our community. Make a gift today!

“I sincerely appreciate the generosity of our community and the commitment to child abuse prevention. Supporting vulnerable families and working with the dedicated early learning professionals across our community has been my personal honor as executive director of MountainStar for the last nineteen years. I am excited to celebrate what we have accomplished together, but am even more excited about where we go from here, because as we all know, when it comes to early childhood – every day counts, and everyone matters,” 
- Tim Rusk, Executive Director.
