About Us

Over forty years ago, Richard and Audrey Tebbs gave birth to their third child, a baby girl who they named Anita Lynne. Anita Lynne was born with profound disabilities including cerebral palsy.


Star offers a comprehensive range of residential, day program and equestrian opportunities based in faith and executed with love and respect for the individuals served.Instead of institutionalizing their young daughter (which was customary at that time), the Tebbs transformed their lives into a cause for celebration and founded the Anita Lynne Home in 1970a place that had the warmth and closeness of family coupled with staff skilled in teaching children with intellectual disabilities. It was their vision to do all of this in a Christian atmosphere.

Today, Star Community remains true to that vision. What began as a home for four young children is now a vibrant, growing organization comprised of 10 distinct residences, a day program and an equestrian program located on 145 acres. Within our scenic setting Star's facilities include two greenhouses, an indoor swimming pool, nature trail and a handicapped accessible fishing pond.
