"Entering the doors of MountainStar, you can feel an overwhelming sense of warmth and community. Giggles could be heard throughout the hallways, and smiling faces were found at every corner. In the classroom, I was met by teachers who felt like friends I had known my whole life. MountainStar’s commitment to the children and families of our community goes beyond the end of the school day. Through MountainStar's therapeutic program, families are given resources to prevent further risk factors, promoting the longevity of a safe and healthy future. Volunteering for MountainStar has been the highlight of my undergraduate degree at Oregon State University and an experience that will stay with me for a lifetime."-Casey Doherty
