STARRY’s goal is to be a beacon of light for children, youth, and families in the midst of life’s challenges, both big and small. STARRY’s counselors, direct care workers, and case managers guide youth and families toward the hope of a better tomorrow. STARRY nurtures children, strengthens families, and restores hope by providing supportive services through trauma-informed Counseling, Family Support, Fatherhood, and Family Preservation services

FAMILY COUNSELING provides counseling services to families with children from birth to 17 years of age (or youth older than 17 who are still enrolled in high school in Texas) who need assistance resolving family conflict or who are facing other difficult situations with their child or teen. We provide evidence-based and promising practices through individual and family counseling, youth and parent skills groups, training, workshops, and family crisis services. All counseling services are provided at no cost to the client. We serve over 30 Texas counties. Please call one of our 8 main counseling offices to learn more about our services and find out if we might be a good fit for your family.

FATHERHOOD PROGRAM provides 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. All services are provided at no cost to the fathers and male caregivers. 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 fathers and male caregivers. Insurance and money are never an issue as we serve clients from varying backgrounds and income levels.

FAMILY PRESERVATION provides therapeutic support to biological families through family engagement services and case management services. STARRY has decades of experience with the Family Engagement / Preservation model, having championed prevention services for over 30 years. We have specifically engaged in trauma-informed services to biological families with children in the Texas foster care system since 2017. These vital services help educate and provide additional resources to biological families with the plan of reunification.
