The Starr Group is pleased to celebrate Society’s Assets as its final 2021 Customer of the Quarter.
One of the participants in our Community Starrs program for non-profits, Society’s Assets is a nonprofit 501(c)3 Center for Independent Living serving people of any age with any disability who live in Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Rock, and Jefferson counties. Established in 1974 in Racine by people with disabilities, the name Society’s Assets was chosen because the founders wanted to be seen as assets to society and be recognized as having abilities to contribute to the community.
SA does not limit its assistance. They are here to help individuals of any age and any disability. They do not place a limit on income.
The organization teaches independent living skills, and offers training classes and workshops allowing SA staff, volunteers and recipients of their services to “train for success”.
The organization is governed and operated by a board and staff comprised of a majority of people with disabilities. Who better would understand the challenges and needs facing those with disabilities? The agency supports individuals’ efforts to achieve their potential and assists local communities in the removal of barriers to independent living.
The SA provides services that are complimentary to other agencies in the community with both non-medical In-Home Care and medical Home Health Care services.
