Family Placement Services
Project STAR’s Family Placement Services consist of adoption, foster care and respite care. These services are aimed at matching children with resource families to accommodate each child’s specific needs. Resource families are called upon to act as a resource for children who cannot remain with their birth families. Depending on their circumstance, children may stay with resource families for a few days, several months or permanently through adoption.
We provide training for our resource families before a child is placed in their homes. Project STAR also offers continuing education and support for resource families even after an adoption is finalized.
A resource family is an individual or family that is willing to partner with Project STAR to help a child who needs a home. Have you thought about helping a child who needs a home by becoming a resource family?
Men and women age 21 and over may become a resource family regardless of:
- Marital status
- Number of children currently living in the home
- Income level
- Home ownership
