Our 6 Core Programs

Each of these programs is being implemented and researched in an effort to create effective intervention models that can be replicated in other communities.

These programs are being implemented and evaluated by an exceptionally dedicated group of staff with advanced training and expertise in trauma who are united around their commitment to improving the experiences and outcomes of children and families in foster care

Our Programs

Evidence Based Mental Health Intervention

The All Star Children’s Foundation clinicians are highly trained trauma specialists with expertise and training in evidence-based interventions for children with trauma and trauma-related disorders. The impact of complex trauma on children and families is vast and diverse. Learn More.

Foster Parent Support

With the mission of ASCF to address childhood trauma, we are working closely with local foster parents and training them with the Resource Parenting Curriculum (RPC), which is supported by The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN). Learn More

Birth Family Engagement

Trauma Training

All Star Children’s Foundation (ASCF) strives to provide children and families who have experienced abuse and/or neglect with individualized, comprehensive, evidence-based, and trauma-informed care. Learn More

Trauma-Informed Systems Integration
