Benefits To Seniors Agencies
STAR provides support to agencies that are directly serving seniors. STAR offers no operational direction or regulation.
- Operational Control Stays Small and Local – Control and management of all services provided to seniors remains with the agency so that services remain local and appropriate for the specific needs of the community they serve.
- Additional Funding – STAR uses its size and reach to access additional funding through grants, subsidies, joint fundraising and sponsorships so that transportation services can be stable and sustainable.
- Business Tools – STAR provides business planning tools that help agencies to plan and execute programs more easily and more efficiently.
- Detailed Reports – STAR provides detailed reports that can be used for communications, program evaluations, board reports and grant proposals. This makes it easier for agencies to stay transparent and accountable.
- Cash Management Support – Any advance payments are handled by STAR so cash handling is minimized.
