STARS serves youth and adults with autism, cognitive and physical disabilities, Wounded Warriors and their families. Staff and Volunteers
provide instruction to help each individual reach their highest potential. We also offer programs that are inclusive to encourage
family and friends to recreate together. Our group programs and camps help to increase opportunities for social interaction with other
clients that face similar challenges in life. These camps and programs help to heal not just the client but families as well as they find
activities where they can participate as a family together.
We serve private clients as well as school groups, and specific groups/associations that serve people with disabilities.
