STARS' mission is to improve the lives of individuals with developmental and cognitive disabilities. Since 1973, STARS has provided exceptional services for individuals with developmental and cognitive disabilities and their families from Scottsdale and throughout metro-Phoenix.
Vocational & Employment Services - Training and opportunities based on the occupational goals and interests of the individuals served by STARS. Included are on-site work centers, job training enclaves with local employers and competitive employment in the community.
Day Programs - Individuals learn basic skills such as behavior and time management, cooking and baking, transportation, safety and social skills. Day Programs also include creative arts programs, recreation opportunities, and a new program designed specifically for adults with autism.
Transitions Program - Offering services to youth with disabilities and their families as a stepping stone between high school and the adult world. This program helps individuals identify benefits, resources and advocacy services that may be available. Additionally, the Young Adult Transition Training Program is offered as an after-school and school break program for teens.
