Therapeutic and adaptive recreation programs provide all people opportunities to enjoy their healthiest, most fulfilling lives.

The STAR Center story

A short time ago, La Crosse community members asked the question, how can we provide the opportunity for everyone to lead the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible? Joining with educators, aging and disability advocates, health professionals, social organizations and support organizations, the vision of health equity was defined. This vision is to close the gap of opportunity to be active for all community members.
