Star Support Foundation got its beginnings in 2015 as Mrs. Reid’s Reading Stars tutoring program, serving the Liberty City community where youth were taught to read through rhythm. Our founder Autrell Reid (Trell) named the organization after his mother in honor of her work as a public school teacher within the community.
Though beneficial to the students who attended, many youth who walked past the building on their way home from school were unable to take part in the program due to financial limitations. To fill the need for a non-profit organization that is accessible within the community, in July of 2016 Star Support Foundation was created. Focusing on developing skills and creative passions through the arts, our foundation provides a safe space for students when school is out.
Today Star Support operates in Hialeah, FL in partnership with North Hialeah Baptist Church. Through our partnership with FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth) we have been able to educate youth about the importance of healthy eating and an active lifestyle.
