Welcome to The Masonic-Eastern Star Home for Children

The Masonic-Eastern Star Home for Children has been providing quality child care for nearly 100 years.

The purpose of the Home is to provide quality care for children who have been separated from their homes due to:

  • Death
  • Divorce
  • Separation
  • Neglect
  • Abuse
  • Inability to adjust to their present living situation.


The Home seeks to provide an environment of love, security and acceptance where a child can grow and develop as an individual.

Each application for admission is evaluated and maintenance fees are based on ability to pay. No child is ever excluded because of inadequate funds.

To find out more information on admitting a child, use the resources tab above.

Donations and Estate Planning

If you are interested in making a donation to the Home or need information on how to include the home in your estate planning, please contact Ron Giesselmann at

Ron is also available to speak to your group or will give you or your group a tour of the Home facilities. Contact Ron to schedule a presentation or tour.
