Our History


Organizational Philosophy

 North Star was founded by professionals who share a desire to deliver exceptional clinical competence along with practical solutions to families. 


Organizational Leadership


North Star became an agency in 2005 after receiving a grant from the Venango Chamber of Commerce and support from Venango County Office of Mental Health/Developmental Disabilities. Both owners had previous experience developing and managing their own programs for other organizations and believed there was an opportunity to create a unique agency committed to providing exceptional services to children and families in Venango County.

In the years that have followed, North Star has developed into one of the premier wraparound agencies in our area and has not yielded in it's desire to deliver the best services for the families with whom we work. The North Star treatment model is a comprehensive team approach combining the efforts and experiences of our Masters level staff, our Bachelors level staff and to work through issues that face our clients.
