Starfire is a visionary organization working to build better lives for people with disabilities. Since 1993, Starfire has worked to create a more inclusive Cincinnati. Starfire is focused on decreasing the social isolation felt by people with disabilities. The data is clear; people with disabilities grow increasingly lonely and isolated as adults. Working with one person at a time, Starfire connects people to relationships and uncovers a person's talents and passions - so they can thrive in their communities alongside their neighbors. Our Community Building program connects people with developmental disabilities to roles and relationships and deepens and sustains those community connections over the long haul. On average people beginning our program have only 1 or 2 close community friendships. Starfire supports people with developmental disabilities experiencing loneliness by connecting them to people and passions in their local area. Starfire supports 75+ adults with developmental disabilities (DD) in a direct, 1:1 model for an average of 156 hours per person annually to connect each person socially through valued roles.
