Successful Resource Parents are dedicated to protecting, nurturing, and providing safe, healthy, trauma-informed environments with positive support for children who need a family. S.T.A.R. Foster Family Agency works as a team with resource parents to meet the needs of the children and support resource parents every step of the way.
S.T.A.R. Foster Family Agency welcomes prospective resource families from all backgrounds. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, gender expression, disability, age, religion, marital status or domestic partnership status. Serving a diverse group of youth, our agency values multicultural and multiracial families, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer families, single-parent families, and all other families, couples and singles that can provide a caring home environment.
Placement decisions will not be determined by the youth or non-minor dependent’s sex assigned at birth. All placement decisions for youth in care will be gender affirming and consider the safety, well-being, and voice of the youth.
Steps to Becoming a Resource Parent
Children are referred to S.T.A.R. Programs by the county where they were removed from and entered foster care. Based upon the child’s background and any special needs, if a match seems promising, an interview is conducted with you and the child to determine compatibility. If it’s a match, the child will become part of your family.
We are able to serve Resource Parents from the following counties: Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, Santa Cruz, San Benito, Solano, San Francisco, and Contra Costa.
