“Our family has been receiving in-home services for our daughter through HCBS for the past several months. This attendant care has given us some much needed relief for 3 evenings per week. They have also provided us with respite care allowing us to get away for a few days. Their Direct Support Providers are very well screened and trained and we feel confident having them care for our daughter in our home. This extra support has been very beneficial to our family.” – Herrgesell family
Ongoing Employment Support
Achieving maximum integration and inclusion in the community through employment.
Employment Support Aid (ESA) and Independent Employment Support (ISE) are both services provided by STARS. These are implemented by assisting members in achieving maximum integration and inclusion in the community attained through employment that emphasizes the individual’s personal goals and aspirations.
ISE/ESA services provides reassurance to members that throughout their employment journey and careers in their life, they are not alone and have support in their workplace. They have security knowing they have access to competitive employment opportunities. Many of the members who have received ISE/ESA services through STARS have been able to develop positive work-related habits, attitudes, skills, and work etiquette directly related to their specific employment.
STARS’ Job Coaches focus on creating and maintaining accommodations for members in their place of employment, assisting the member in maintain employment goals and becoming fully integrated in the workforce culture. Job Coaches are the liaison between members, managers, and their support system.
“They help me talk to my managers. If there is anything wrong, my job coach is there. They are there if I have any questions.” – Justin Beyda, ESA Participant
“Through all the change over the years, STARS has always made it important for Justin to know his job coach. Even with a weekly phone call so that Justin is more comfortable, and they get to know him personally. So, when there is an issue that arises at work, he feels stable going to the job coach for help.”
- Charlyce Beyda, Justin’s Mother
When good people are empowered with possibilities, it’s their opportunity to shine.
