A LETTER FROM OURLEADERSThis last year was exciting for STARS as we began construction at the STARS Ranch, a place ofhope and healing. When the lodge is complete, it will provide STARS the opportunity to servemore clients and groups. The lodge will provide accessible lodging in one convenient location thatwill allow groups better opportunities to connect with each other and for us to easily facilitatemeals and transportation to our programs. STARS will be one of the few adaptive programs in thecountry that will own their own facility designed specifically to support the needs of our clients.Another highlight from last year was the Adaptive PE program, which is in its 3rd year and is apartnership with our schools and the Craig-Scheckman Family Foundation. It is designed to provideincreased physical activity and socialization opportunities for our local students with disabilitiesduring the school day. This program has been widely accepted by each school in the SteamboatSprings School District and has provided over 1,000 hours of direct service for students withdisabilities to experience different types of adaptive recreation throughout the school year.Another highlight from last year was hiring Sam Sykes, our Therapy Riding Center Manager. HiringSam solidifies our commitment to the therapeutic riding program and Sam brings tremendousexpertise in horse management as well as innovative teaching methods.Finally, we have increased our number of Military Veteran Camps this last year. One exciting newmilitary program was the STARS and Stripes Visually Impaired (VI) Veterans Camp. In its firstyear we were able to change the lives of eight Veterans by providing them the opportunity tolearn to ski and ride in Steamboat. Overall, we saw a 57% increase in the number of individualsserved this last year in our military programs. We expect that number to grow significantly withthe opening of the STARS Ranch.

Finally, the focus of our Board this year has been on the implementation of our Strategic Initiatives.Through resiliency, determination, and a sense of purpose we have made significant progress ofall of these. As a Board and staff, we remain committed to “Building a Brighter Future” for ourclients and families.
