Starr from Inkster, MI

Dance classes are critical to maintaining my daughter's health and development.

My daughter was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder. She enjoys dancing so I'd like for her to continue taking classes.


I am a proud mother of my 15 year old daughter, Starr, who has been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder. She has made tremendous progress in the last few months and is now stable and on the honor roll.

Starr's current goals are to graduate from high school, continue dancing and maintaining her health.

Starr wants to continue taking dance classes but due to my families limited income I am not able to support the next session of classes. I am seeking support to raise funding to help me pay for three months of dance classes, dance attire, equipment and accessories.

If Starr is able to continue attending dance classes it will provide structure to her day, reinforce her need to maintain a stable and healthy mental state, and aide in her overall development.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Starr fund this need.

I have been working with the family for about 6 months. This will allow my client's daughter to continue progressing and keep her motivated towards her goals. She has already made great strides and we want to ensure that she continue taking care of herself.
