It All Started With A Vision

It was an honor and privilege to join with past Board Chair, Marni Hirshman, last month to celebrate the 90th birthday of Mary King, visionary founder of the Scottsdale Foundation for the Handicapped – now known as STARS – and present her with a crystal vase bearing the inscription:

“Presented to Mary King, Happy Birthday from all your friends at STARS”.

- David Henderson, STARS President & CEO


Celebrating 50 Years Of Dedication

You can't think about STARS Founder Mary King without thinking about Fiesta! The Fiesta is an annual tradition in STARS' long legacy and each Fiesta helps to support our mission of improving the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities.  


Need A Ride Scottsdale?

We are now a service provider offering transportation services to Scottsdale residents age 65+ and people with disabilities (and are ADA-certified) enrolled in the city’s Cab Connection Voucher Program. These individuals can schedule rides with STARS to and from the Meals on Wheels program, dialysis, and medical appointments. Passengers in need of a ride can use their respective pink vouchers when booking travel to and from senior centers. View STARS CAB Connection Partnership in the news here.

Our mission is to improve the lives of people with developmental disabilities by providing a wide array of programs that serve a variety of needs.  We are always interested in new team members who display a passion for service and improving the lives of others. View Current Open Positions
