STARS-Scottsdale Training & Rehabilitation Services
Formerly known as the Scottsdale Foundation for the Handicapped, STARS was founded in 1973 by a small group of parents concerned with the lack of resources for their developmentally disabled children. Affectionately referred to as “Las Madrinas” (the Godmothers), what started in a small, donated trailer with only a few participants and volunteers has become an organization with two thriving locations that serve more than 200 individuals each day.
During our 40+ year history, STARS has committed itself to providing an array of high-quality, integrated services to adults with disabilities in the metro Phoenix area. Programming for youth, adult day services, vocational training & employment create a lifetime support system for STARS participants and their families.
