My Holiday Journey

Have you ever planned a trip without knowing how to get where you were going?

In the mid-1980’s, my wife and I (okay, it was me) decided to vacation in the Ozarks. We lived in Chicago, and there were plenty of places within a few hours’ drive that we’d never been to before, but for some reason (me again) it didn’t seem like a vacation if the trip did not involve a 500-mile car ride. Back then, vacation planning was easy, courtesy of the local AAA office. All you needed was a TripTik® – a multi-page, spiral-bound series of map pages with your route marked in pink highlighter. Sightseeing tips along the route were included. Smartphone apps and GPS have modernized this, and that’s a good thing.


Share Your STARS Memories

For five decades, STARS has been an invaluable resource for individuals and families, providing support, education, and hope to those who require our services.

From its humble beginnings to its current status as a stalwart for those with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD), STARS has touched countless lives and made a real difference in the Valley Of The Sun. Whether you've been directly impacted by the organization or simply admire its mission, we would love to hear from you. 

Now it's your turn!  Simply visit our guest book and share your journey that led you to STARS.  As we gear up for the 50th Fiesta we would love to share your sentiments with others as we celebrate this momentous occasion.

How Sweet It Is

Valentine’s Day is a holiday we love to celebrate at STARS!  Each year the CommunityWork and Adult DTA Programs participants exchange cards and candy and have a grand time during the exchange.   This year was super special as the ladies of the National Charity League – Sonoran Centennial Chapter provided the goodies.
