About Us and Our Mission


Creating Opportunities

Making A Difference

Serving Northwest Indiana & South Suburban Illinois

Welcome to Club Shining Stars,   a 501c3 non profit organization.  Our mission is to provide recreation, socialization,   and education to individuals with disABILITIES and their families.   Our organization was founded in October of 2012.    We were founded by bunch of  parents and caregivers who created this group in order to meet with each other along with our families in social settings.   Our club's goal is to provide services to individuals that are:  developementaly delayed,  have behavioral disorders, disabilities such as but not limited to autism, cerebral palsy, ADHD, sensory processing disorder, and down syndrome, and  as well as their typical siblings.   We service Northwest Indiana and the South Suburban Illinois.  

Club Shining Stars hosts its own events and also lists on its calendar ones held by other organizations. Our goal is to  create a resource where it is easy to find events and programs tailored for those with disabilities.  

Our group was created on the belief that everyone has a voice in what we do, how we operate, and what type of events  and programs we host.  We want this to be a group effort.  We are open to any feedback or ideas from any member.  We also want to create a platform for other parents to meet and just have fun or exchange ideas.  It is also important for the typical sibblings to attend so they can meet other children in the same situation that can relate to them.  We want to provide nurturing environment with a bunch of caring people who understand.
