Sleep Out! Team Spotlight – Starr Avenue Superstars

Kellie and Pete, along with their teenage niece, make-up the Starr Avenue Superstars, just one of the many teams sleeping out on April 12th, 2019 at COSI. Learn more about them and why they are participating!

  • Why is your team sleeping out on April 12th, 2019?  We are participating in Sleep Out! because there are homeless teens in Columbus, and we will continue to do so until there are not.  Being homeless, especially through this brutal winter, is unfathomable for most of us.  The least that we can do is bring some attention to the problem and, hopefully, pull in some resources to help solve it.
  • What does your team hope to gain from the Sleep Out?  We hope to wake Columbus up about homelessness, especially where teens and young adults are involved.
  • What is your relationship to Huck House?  I have been on the board for at least 12 years, and Kellie now works part-time for Huck House
