K'STAR Emergency Shelter provides nurture and support for displaced children. Through the practice of Trauma-Informed Care, we start the process of healing the abuse, neglect, and trauma suffered in their early years. Our home can house up to twenty youngsters ages birth to seventeen. Children are placed with us through the Texas Department of Protective Services, 2Ingage, Saint Francis Ministries, and Belong.
It is our goal to help families develop the skills they need to remain together in a safe and loving environment for all involved. Our family and youth counseling services are provided free of charge to eligible families and aim to prevent runaways, truancy, abuse, and neglect. We maintain a crisis hotline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for children and parents.
Improve your family dynamic with parenting classes and family counseling. For youth in distress that affects their ability or willingness to attend school, we offer truancy prevention and dropout counseling sessions.
In the event that a court of law requires you to attend parenting classes, we offer a class once a week for six weeks. At the successful conclusion of the class, you receive a certificate of completion to turn in to meet Child Protective Services, court, or probation requirements. Contact us to register for classes.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR CLIENT: Parent or legal guardian must call the office to schedule an intake appointment.
COST TO CLIENT: All services are provided at no cost. No insurance needed or taken.

Thank you from the children, and from us.
