Greetings STARS friends and supporters,

The day has finally arrived!

With immense thanks to all Arizonans who have been wearing masks and practicing social distancing, Covid-19 cases are steadily declining and businesses are slowly reopening.

We’re doing that today at STARS, taking small simple steps as we restart the work center program while continuing to follow the recommended CDC guidelines to safeguard the health of our staff and participants.

Next week, on Sept. 8, we’ll launch in-home DTA programming as the next step towards the eventual return of onsite programming. Contact your STARS case coordinator for additional information.

For safety’s sake, we’ll continue our practice of daily temperature checks, frequent handwashing, routine disinfecting of high-touch surfaces, and appropriate social distancing.

Since the onset of the pandemic, the STARS Covid-19 Response Team has worked nonstop to prepare for this day. I am so proud of them, and hope that you are too.

Looking for a way to express your support for STARS? Here are three:

1) send a thoughtful, encouraging email to our Covid-19 Response Team,
2) make a financial contribution of an amount that brings joy to your heart,
3) commit to a meaningful monthly donation of $10 to our Covid-19 Relief Fund.

Stay healthy and continue to mask up!


David Henderson, President & CEO

Thank you – your donations are greatly appreciated!
