"Special Times and Recreation"

STARS mission is to provide “Special Times And Recreation” for teens and adults with Special Needs north of the Broad River, in Beaufort, South Carolina.








Our Story

STARS is an independent organization that is staffed entirely by volunteers with established relationships with SOAR, an organization in Bluffton and Hilton Head that fosters the Special Olympics and other activities.  STARS will continue its sponsorship of the “Hammerhead Sharks,” a swim team that trains at the Beaufort YMCA, that competes at local, regional and at the State level.  In the future, STARS may expand its Special Olympics support by establishing teams in other disciplines.


STARS held our first event in September 2018, by hosting a Yoga Class at Artizen Yoga of Beaufort.  In October, STARS held a fishing event at Habersham for our STARS friends. In January 2018, STARS held their kickoff Dance, hosted by the Low Country Shaggers, Tommy & Sheri O’Brien, at the Charles Lind Brown Activity Center.  Please check our calendar often to view upcoming events.

Get Involved

It is a goal to involve community members who volunteer and ultimately run the various special times and recreational activities under the supervision of STARS. STARS is very fortunate to have such a warm, caring and giving community in the Beaufort area that, we believe, will step up and volunteer for our programs that will greatly enhance the lives of locals with “Special Needs.”  If you would like to volunteer, donate or would like to host a recreational service for STARS, please contact:
