Our Services for Prospective Foster and Adoptive Families
Lonestar Social Services facilitates the short-term or permanent placement of children in the Texas foster care system. Our team works comprehensively with foster parents and adoptive families, making sure that they are fully prepared to raise a child.
Adoption Home Assessments
We offer adoption home assessment and inspection program to ensure that each foster child is adopted by a family that best meets his or her needs. Our team is composed of qualified professionals who are thorough and objective when working with families who wish to adopt. These people are trained to meet the highest quality standards in adoptive home assessments.
As most of our workers are adoptive parents themselves, we understand the emotional highs and lows that accompany the process of adoption. We are here to support you with our services that are available at competitive prices. Whether you are a couple or a single adult who wants to adopt a child, we can help you.
Home Safety Planning
There are many dangers in the home that are easy to overlook. To keep children safe, it is essential to recognize these dangers and take the proper precautions.
Our OSHA certified safety specialist can make recommendations for securing your home in preparation for foster care or adoption. We can also help you install safety products.
First Aid and CPR Training
The Lonestar Social Services CPR/First Aid Training Center offers Basic Life Support (BLS) courses in CPR and first aid to everyone who wishes to learn how to save a life.
Taught by certified instructors, are training programs are official American Heart Association courses. At the end of the program, participants will be issued an official American Heart Association completion card.
Reminders When Attending First Aid and CPR Classes
Anticipate being on your hands and knees most of the time—bending, standing, and lifting. For this reason, it is important to wear loose, comfortable clothing.
If you have any physical conditions that may prevent you from doing these activities, please tell the administrator during the registration. The CPR Program Coordinator will work to accommodate your needs within the stated course completion requirements.
