Making a Referral
The agency accepts referrals of pregnant clients as well as those who have already given birth. Just telephone Adoption STAR and give us as much information on the potential client as you possibly can. We can arrange to talk to the client or they may call us themselves. Please feel free to provide them with our contact information including the toll free number: 1.866.691.3300 or with our email.
We respond immediately to all referrals, including those received in the evenings and on weekends.
Health Care Providers
Adoption STAR is out in the community routinely providing adoption-related presentations to all kinds of audiences, including public health departments, hospitals, medical groups, medical clinics, community health centers, and the like. We’d happily arrange for an in-service, training, or presentation for any interested health care professionals (and we certainly can abide by nearly any time frame, be it a 30 minute training or a full day’s worth of training). We can work to tailor a presentation to meet your needs should you have any specific topics of interest, areas of concern, etc. We’d happily come to you to deliver this kind of a presentation, all at no charge.
