Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are some of the most joyous people you can find anywhere. It is our mission to improve the quality of their lives through day programs, on-site work centers, community-based employment training opportunities, and transition programs for young adults. We provide a welcoming, inclusive environment for this underserved population of residents with programs and activities that focus on them and the things they love to do.

I believe the transition from GSE (Group Supported Employment) Program to the Employment 1st Initiative was a blessing in disguise; in that the new program allowed my brother to experience the entire job search process while being fully assisted by STARS. Prior to this experience, Brian had never applied to jobs, gone to an actual interview or experienced how much effort and energy it takes just looking for jobs. I could not be more thankful to STARS for providing my brother with this valuable life experience.
