Are you a CommunitySTAR?

Do you have a relative, friend, teacher, or neighbor who is a CommunitySTAR? Or, maybe you work for/or with an organization, whose goal is to enhance the lives of women, children and families and has made a positive impact in the community?

A CommunitySTAR is an "Unsung Hero", one who volunteers or gets paid to do a job and goes above and beyond their expected duties and responsibilities to make a positive impact in someone’s life.

CommunitySTARS are changing lives to change lives and that is what the 2017 Maryland Women's Conference & Resource EXPO is all about.
