Partners for Opportunity

The Advocacy Center and LDA Life and Learning Services were founded by people who wanted better opportunities for their loved ones with disabilities. Now together as Starbridge, we partner with people with disabilities, their families, and others who support them, to realize fulfilling possibilities in education, employment, health, and community living. Together we work to transform communities to include everyone. See all the ways we can help.
