Why StarThrowers?

The story of the starfish is attributed to writer Loren Eisley in the 1970s. The author leaves us with powerful words, "I made a difference to that one". This applies to our group on multiple levels. 

We help each member based on individual skills, needs, and goals.

We help our mentors gain experience and educational opportunities. 

We help families translate and understand complicated processes and options and know they are not alone.

We help our community to provide competitive, Integrated employment, and to recognize and appreciate the differences and abilities in each person.
