“STARS helps students & adults from Wildwood have purpose, develop vocational and social skills, and contribute to their community. At Wildwood, we wholeheartedly thank STARS for providing this opportunity that caters to people's strengths and goals, and fulfills a vision of Community Inclusion. It is because of Community Partners like STARS that we are able to improve the overall wellbeing of students with disabilities.”
