Get Involved

The vision and commitment of experienced community leaders, educational institutions, healthcare providers, social services and local government are creating a transformative opportunity for La Crosse area residents—and a new community health model. We need your help to make sure everyone can lead their healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.


Our challenge is great but the positive impact will be far greater. Please consider a gift to make the STAR Center a reality for our community.


Let your family, friends and neighbors know how you and others can benefit from STAR Center.


Opportunities exist now and in the future for interested professionals, students and community members.


When the STAR Center is complete, join us for therapy, activities, leagues, access to services and social opportunities.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Our communities are fortunate to have so many committed individuals and organizations working hard to elevate people, especially those who need help to thrive. This ambitious project inspires me each day—seeing common interests form, missions intersect, overlap, then converge into a powerful wave in support of shared community interests. We welcome you to become a part of this exciting development, one that will
further enhance our exceptional quality of life.
