The STAR Center is happy to announce the addition of Donald Young (Don) as our Manager of Home Care Services. Don has over twenty-five years of experience in serving those with disabilities and seniors across much of West Tennessee.

“I’m excited about being a part of The STAR Center, and the legacy they have in the community,” said Young.

As a lifelong resident of Bolivar and Hardeman County, Don has invested in his community through service. This includes Relay for Life, Bolivar General Hospital Healthcare Foundation, and Hope House Shelter. He’s a Past-President of the Bolivar Rotary Club and also served on the Hardeman County Budget Committee. He and his wife of 41 years, Andrea, have one daughter and three grandchildren. They’re active members of First Baptist Church – Bolivar. Don holds a Bachelor and Master of Business Administration from Bethel University.

“We are so excited to have Don join our team,” said Dave Bratcher, The STAR Center President. “Having his experience will be paramount in leading our great team into the future.”

The STAR Center was founded in 1988 and the mission is to help any person with any disability realize their future. In 1997, the services expanded to include Home Care. The STAR Center believes everyone should be able to age in place whenever possible and believe the peace of mind for caregivers is within reach.
