Hope Community Resources


Short-Term Assistance and Referral (STAR) Program Assists people in learning what is required to meet the state law definition of developmentally disabled, navigating the eligibility process, and understanding what services, other than waiver, may be available. This program is funded through the State of Alaska, Department of Health and Social Services. For those in need of assistance in applying for developmental disability determination, completing a registration and review form, or require other supports and/or assistance in applying for state funded grants and/or programs please contact a STAR Coordinator nearest you.

Supported Employment We assist individuals with locating and demonstrating success in the jobs that meet their interests and skills. Individuals are accepted at any stage in the employment continuum, from beginning volunteer work, to building skills and experience, to those re-entering the work force. A variety of volunteer and work situations are available in the community.
