There are so many stories of success here at New Star – stories like April, who lives in one of our 22 residential homes, worked in our production in the Day Services program, learned skills in our janitorial program, and found a full-time job after coaching from our Employment Services department.

But we can’t do it without you. Your gift will help more than 650 children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities reach their potential, become more independent, gain authority over their own lives, and ultimately improve their quality of life.
