Let It Be Us is working with an older child who is a product of the foster care system who is is need of a full-time job and place to live that would look like an inexpensive apartment, an in-law apartment, or a room with access to a kitchen and a bathroom. He needs to stay in and around Fox River Grove, Illinois or Cary, Illinois or Barrington, Illinois. Anyone who can help in any way is encouraged to complete this form IMMEDIATELY.
This boy is a very, very good kid. He has graduated from high school and has attended community college. He is independent and responsible. He is interested in foreign cultures and speaks some Japanese. He has a part-time job at Jewel Grocery Store and that’s good for now, but that’s not sustainable employment that will allow him to pay his bills and support himself long-term. He needs a full-time job. He is responsible. He is quiet. He is likable. He does not have a family. He just needs a chance in life.
We are reaching out to our Let It Be Us community to step up and help. This boy has been involved in our Mentorship Program for a few years now and with our help he has become all he can be, but he needs your help with his next phase of life. Your help could change the outcome of his life. This boy is the perfect example of a child who has aged out of foster care, with absolutely nothing.
Let It Be Us is a 501(c)3 Child Welfare Agency working together with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) as well as all licensing agencies throughout Illinois. Our goal through our recruitment events is to increase the number of licensed foster parents in Illinois and to help children in emergent need and those who are challenging to place find families. Our work helps caseworkers keep children out of shelters and off of office floors at night.
