walking alongside families

In addition to providing classes and programs for STARS, we are also here to support the families who love them. We realize that the entire family, and often extended family, is impacted by a family member who has a disability. We desire to form relationships between our church family and your family to offer prayer, support, encouragement and respite. 

If you have specific needs or concerns or just need someone to talk to, please contact our director, Julie Clemens.
