Get to Know the Lonestar Social Services Team

Lonestar Social Services, a social service agency provides many valuable services to the community. We are a dedicated team of professionals dedicated to serving Texas' most precious resource, our children. Lonestar Social Services offers foster care services and adoptions.

Foster care is an integral part of caring for children who have been abused and or neglected. Having loving homes to care for children who's parents are unable or unwilling to do so is our top priority. Our goal is to have every child in Texas in a safe, loving environment.
