Howard Beach, Queens, NY
Rob and Frances, Owners
STARS Youth Center provides after school homework help, leadership development and recreational activities to over 200 families in Howard Beach, Queens. While the organization does great work for the community, the building is literally falling apart around the kids that consider it home. After a fire, a flood and over a century of wear and tear the space is no longer safe, but the neighborhood children have nowhere else to go.
Newlywed owners Rob and Frances spent the first three months of their marriage trying to do the necessary repairs themselves but fear there was no end in sight. Now this altruistic couple and their community need a construction intervention to revamp their center and keep their kids reaching for the STARS!
Silestone joined with Construction Intervention to provide countertop surfaces, fabrication and installation with hands-on involvement from Counter Revolution for STARS Youth Center. Silestone Stellar Marine Blue Sahara was donated for this project.
