Stavros Options Counselors will work with anyone who wants to get out of a nursing home or stay in their own home by helping to find home care (including PCA services), equipment, and supports.
Stavros is a member of the Pioneer Valley Aging and Disability Resource Consortium which consists of WestMass Elder Care, Greater Springfield Senior Services, Highland Valley Elder Service Center, and Franklin County Home Care Corporation. The PVADRC is part of a statewide initiative dedicated to giving people with disabilities and the elderly information to make informed decisions about where they want to live and receive services.
Stavros helps families stay together by providing the needed support to remain independent and living at home.
Children with Disabilities should have the same opportunities to play and learn as other kids. Stavros helps parents make that dream come true.
Teenagers with disabilities should be thinking about their futures. Our Transition to Adulthood program can help them achieve their goals.
We are proud to announce that we have joined the Residual Fundraising Program with Viridian Energy, a socially responsible retail energy company that supplies competitively priced green energy in your area.
We need your calls about two very important Issues:
Alternative Housing Voucher Program expands housing opportunities for people with disabilities. AHVP has a current wait list of more than 2,000 people. Ask your Senator to increase funding to this needed program. Find more information here
IL Centers empower people of all ages with a wide range of disabilities with the practical skills and self-confidence to take control over their lives and become active members of the community. In 2015, we transitioned 228 people out of institutions and into community, saving the Commonwealth an estimated $4.5 million. Money spent on Independent Living Centers is money saved: call your Senator and ask for an increase of $500,000 on Line Item 4120-0200.

We are inviting people with disabilities, community members, housing advocates, people currently seeking housing, and cross-sector agencies to come together.
We want to hear from YOU! Share your housing stories, discuss housing issues, tell us what would be your ideal housing situation, tell us how housing will help you be healthy and feel a part of the community.
