Starr Commonwealth provides a wide array of services for children, teens, adults and families. From prevention and intervention, to enrichment and residential treatment, all of our programs are based on creating powerful and positive environments.

It is remarkable that, from a ramshackle barn purchased by Floyd Starr in 1913, our organization has grown to the extent that it annually impacts over 1.5 million people globally.

Foster Care

Foster care is for children from birth to age 18 who have been removed from their families because of abuse or neglect. Many children are in need of temporary homes, and placement counselors make sure children have secure places with caring foster parents. We’re always looking for good families to care for kids in transition.
