“Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.” – Rita F. Pierson

Welcome to Maple Star!  Our beginning in Nevada focused on providing foster care services to our community.   We have a combined 26 years of experience providing therapeutic level foster care services.  Our homes are therapeutic level foster homes, which means the youth we work with have a history of trauma or have mental health needs.
Fostering is a challenging and rewarding experience; foster parents make lasting impacts on the lives of foster children and their families.  Fostering is a great way to give back to our community.  A foster home provides a safe, supportive and structured environment to a child from our community while reunification or long-term placement options are achieved.  Supportive services are usually provided to children while in foster care, including therapy, PSR/BST services, and coordination with other community service agencies.
Becoming a parent requires preparedness on your part.  Click here for a list of basic foster parent qualifications.  We provide the initial training to help you gain knowledge and feel confident in starting this experience, and we continue to provide ongoing trainings, coaching, and in-home support.  
When you are ready to start the first steps, a specialist from Maple Star will meet with you to discuss in more detail the training curriculum, the steps to become a licensed foster home, explain the process of placing children in your home once licensed, and how Maple Star continues to support our foster homes to help this be a positive experience for both foster parents and children.

Maple Stars roots are in foster care
