High Contrast

Dear Friends:

I hope you are finding ways to stay cool while enjoying summer.

Many of you responded to our survey back in May, and we appreciate your feedback. We are reviewing the results carefully so we can identify areas of success and opportunities for improvement.


Our 2017 Impact Report is now available online.Starbridge Impact 2017 cover image shows a group of people in a circle making a star out of their fingers

We are grateful for the support of donors throughout the year. With your assistance, we were able to help more than 10,000 people last year!

On July 1st, Medicaid Service Coordination transitioned to Care Coordination across New York. For people who receive Medicaid services, this transition requires you to enroll with one of the Care Coordination Organizations (CCOs) in your region. Once you have enrolled, you, along with your Care Coordinator and your Circle of Support, choose what level of support you would like from your CCO.

This transition to Care Coordination does not affect the education, employment and community living supports and services you or a loved one may receive from Starbridge.

Planning is underway for our fall and winter workshops, webinars, and conferences. We have events addressing benefits, educational challenges, and community organizing.

Watch for emails from us, or visit our website calendar to see what we have scheduled so far.

Colin Garwood

Kind regards,
