By continuing to offer programs and services in early intervention, day care services, respite care, vocational services, home care and residential living options, STARC fulfills its mission to move individuals through a life-long process toward greater well-being and independence. Today STARC is one of the largest employers in St. Tammany Parish and brings direct economic impact to our local community.

In fact, STARC is one of our community’s most valuable resources. Your support can ensure that we can sustain our role for many more generations, as a leading resource for all who care about individuals with special needs from cradle through end-of-life.
