Wheaton charity breaks ground on new residences
WHEATON – A five-decade-old charity organization recently marked its desire to expand its presence in Wheaton with a groundbreaking ceremony on two new community homes for intellectually disabled adults.
STARS Family Services provides opportunities for those with disabilities and their families, including events, camps and residential living for adults who have aging parents. The organization already has one full-time residence, and had a groundbreaking for another two residences at 377 N. Cross St. on Sunday.
Dawn Clark, the director of Disabled Ministry at the affiliated College Church and a member of the STARS board, said the housing aspect of members’ outreach came after seeing a troubling problem in the adult disabled population.
