Stars of HOPE®

A simple idea that is changing the world.

Stars of HOPE® is a unique disaster relief and community arts program started in 2007.

We empower people to transform communities impacted by natural and human-caused disasters by creating colorful art and messages of hope and healing on one-foot wooden stars that are displayed in public for months and even years after historic tragedies. The stars serve as beacons of compassion for all to see and have made a direct impact on the long-term mental health and resiliency of individuals and entire communities recovering from disaster.

How to turn any tragedy into HOPE

“The first time I saw some stars, I smiled. The second time, I stopped to read them. The next time, I found myself looking for them and excited to see new ones. That was the moment I realized your beautiful stars became my focus instead of the destruction that was once our beautiful life. Thank you for the beauty you are bringing back to us.”
Dana C., Hurricane Sandy survivor, Sheepshead Bay, NY
