Who We are

Shining Stars Network was founded in 2012 by the Curci family to provide a platform for the special needs community to showcase their many talents in an inclusive environment!

Starting as a local talent show in Cranford, N.J., Shining Stars Network has grown into a charity that offers creative arts opportunities all year round, currently serving members of seven New Jersey Counties.


What We Do

We are proud that we open doors for friendships between people with and without special needs to come together. Our doors are always open for anyone looking to help us make the special needs community shine!

We’re always happy to talk about our programs and services. 

We need your support to do our work — contact us to learn how you can volunteer or donate.


Who We Help

Currently serving members of seven New Jersey Counties, we work with all individuals with any form of IEP (Individual Education Program).

We also provide opportunities for volunteers to mentor our Shining Stars as buddies. These buddies help grow our Shining Stars confidence and also learn more about themselves and the world around them.

Our Goals

Our long term goal is to provide programs to all individuals with and without special needs in the USA to allow them a platform to show the world just how talented they are!

Our short term goal is to expand our reach to the entire community in New Jersey and the New York Tri-State area.

We are continuing to expand the platform of what we do and are proud of every new step we take to show the world how talented our Shining Stars are!
