The Adult Services program is operated in the STAR building. Each individual enrolled in our program is assigned a staff member called an ISF, who is responsible for meeting the individual’s needs based on the ISP. This plan is developed by a team of people including the individual and the important people in his/her life. All ISPs are written by an SSA and the individual’s team. As needs vary greatly from person to person, the ISF may provide anything from personal care to reading instruction.
