Project Description

Project:
Expand Starfire U

Grant Award:
$109,000

Starfire’s mission is to enrich the lives of teens and adults with developmental disabilities through unlimited opportunities that build independence and community inclusion. The Impact 100 grant helped expand Starfire U.

Starfire U is a seminar curriculum that is coupled with clients having an opportunity to be involved in daily community experiences, which provides practice in real life settings. The model is particularly effective in increasing social confidence, personal responsibility, self-awareness, employability and independence of its clients. The Impact 100 grant provided instructors and staffing resources for the next two incoming Starfire U classes.
