What is Polaris?

Polaris is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization.

 

What does Polaris mean?

Polaris is the North star, it is the light that guides one home and gives one hope and stability in the darkness. It was on this idea of the light of hope in one’s darkest moments that we chose to name this rescue team after Polaris. “Praelucente” is Latin for “guiding light”.
