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.
Starr’s community-based programs include foster care, in-home counseling, psychological assessments, testing, therapy and more.
