Why are we launching the HCBS Program?
While COVID-19 has been challenging for everyone, it has been especially difficult for people with developmental disabilities who rely upon the daily supports they receive from their dedicated direct support professionals.
Due to health concerns related to in-person congregate settings, STARS traditional onsite day treatment and training programs have been suspended since March 2020. And although we supplanted onsite programming with remote virtual learning opportunities, there is no substitute for the growth in life skills and social skills an individual can achieve through their in-person interaction with peers.
As we approach the anniversary of the pandemic, many individuals with cognitive and developmental disabilities are remaining at home, not wanting to venture out over health and safety concerns. To help meet them where they are, STARS is launching a suite of in-home services that will provide the supports these individuals rely upon for their self-care, independence, and self-sufficiency.
