Since 1966, StarVista programs have transformed the lives of children, teens, adults, families, and the communities where they live. StarVista became what it is today through the extensive merging of local agencies throughout the county, all dedicated to helping individuals overcome life’s challenges. As we reflect on more than five decades of service and remarkable growth, StarVista proves to be the premier thought leader and service provider addressing early childhood development, mental health, youth homelessness, recovery services, and suicide and crisis intervention in San Mateo County.
StarVista empowers individuals through a range of services, including youth leadership programming, child and parent services and support groups, and mental health services for people of all ages across San Mateo County.
Through substance abuse treatment, transitional housing programs, and comprehensive mental health programming for at-risk youth including homeless, runaway, juvenile justice involved, and former foster youth, StarVista inspires hope to persevere.
