Do you know people or organizations who deserve to be recognized for their good work?

Nominate them for a Starbridge Community Award!

Starbridge’s Community Awards honor people and organizations creating positive change in the lives of people who have disabilities. At Starbridge, we partner with people who have disabilities, their families, and those who support them to realize fulfilling possibilities in education, employment, health, and community living.

Through these awards, we seek to shine the spotlight on remarkable candidates throughout the Greater Rochester and Finger Lakes areas. We value diversity and welcome nominations from diverse communities. Together, we can transform communities to include everyone.
