Board President: New Strategic Plan Guiding STARability into Best Years Yet

It’s an exciting time for all of us at STARability. With the recent completion of the Strategic Plan that will be our guiding force for the next three years, we are organized to grow our funding, our programs and our infrastructure. When I raised my glass at our gala in March, I made a prediction this would be our best year yet! I’m so proud to see this prediction being realized. Our brand-new STAR Store, a furniture resale shop on 10th St. North in the Naples Design District, opened Aug. 1 and will be providing us with a year-round revenue stream. I am so grateful to our Board of Directors, our Executive Director, Karen, and her staff, and our generous donors for helping us double our operating budget for this year. It takes an impassioned and committed group of people to keep breathing life into this vibrant organization, and I am thrilled to be part of it. Keep your eye out for other exciting developments.
