STARRY Counseling services are available at no cost to families with children up to 17 years old (or youth older than the age of 17 who are still enrolled in high school in Texas). Counseling services include individual, group, and family counseling as well as parenting classes. Thanks to DFPS Prevention and Early Intervention’s STAR Program funding, along with the generosity of our donors, services are provided at no cost to clients. Insurance and money are never an issue, as we serve clients from varying backgrounds and income levels.
STARRY’s Fatherhood Program provides counseling services to fathers and male caregivers living in Bell and McLennan counties with a child up to 17 years of age. Expectant fathers and male caregivers are also able to access our services. We provide evidence-based services through individual and family counseling, individual and family case management, parent skills groups, trainings, consultation services, and special events for fathers and their children.
STARRY is a foster care agency dedicated to providing safe, loving homes for children in need of temporary care. Foster parents open their hearts and homes to children who need to live away from their families due to crisis. This program also serves children who need immediate protection, typically after being removed from their homes by court order due to life-threatening abuse or neglect.
