Recently Jason’s Connection’s Founder, Jason Harris, sat down to talk with Tim Vogt, Executive Director of Starfire Council, a visionary organization working to build better lives for people with disabilities.

In this fascinating interview, Tim shares his philosophy, journey, and the mission of Starfire.

“We’re [Starfire] trying to build an un-program…where we we ask, ‘Who are you? And how do you make a contribution to the world in your own unique way?'”

STARFIRE was formed in 1993, when a dedicated group of families and volunteers came together to find ways to decrease social isolation and give people with disabilities access to social activities. From this, they created monthly calendars for people with disabilities to choose outings to go on together. Starfire is focused on decreasing the social isolation felt by people with disabilities.
