Since 1965, our mission has been one of belief.
When you’ve completed the Rawhide program, you return to the community. You may say goodbye to your residential staff, Starr Academy teachers and new friends on the day you move out, but we hope your relationship with Rawhide extends far longer. Wherever you may go in life, we hope you’ll stay in touch and reach out for support if you need it.
We want Rawhide alumni to succeed far beyond our therapy sessions and residential care setting. So we offer continued support in five key areas: education, environment, employment, economics and other needs. That includes everything from helping alumni afford tuition to finding a job, housing and church.
Alumni can succeed in the community when they have access to services that keep them safe, healthy and employed. We help by offering a limited number of scholarships. To apply for help with educational assistance, housing, medical bills or other emergency needs, alumni can fill out this application.
We connect alumni with a wide range of community resources that can help them live a healthy, full life. Looking for support after you’ve left Rawhide? See a full list of organizations for more resources.
Stay in touch and reach out for support if you need it.
