Foster Care 101: Learn More with Let It Be Us

November 30, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Let It Be Us virtually for our Learn More with Let It Be Us event series.

In our Foster Care 101 events, we cover everything from “What is foster care?” to “How do I become a licensed foster parent?”

Our Learn More with Let It Be Us events are open to current and future foster & adoptive parents. During our 90-minute event, a Let It Be Us Foster Care Expert and a licensed foster parent will discuss how to obtain a foster care license, what it means to be a foster parent, how to navigate adoption through foster care, the trials, tribulations, challenges, love, and more.

Throughout the event, all prospective foster parents will have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers live. To ask a question prior to the event, please submit through our official Learn More with Let It Be Us Google Form.

Topics we cover in our Learn More with Let It Be Us: Foster Care 101 events:

Foster care licensing in Illinois; Working with a Let It Be Us Foster Care Licensing Coach; What is the difference between specialized and traditional foster care; What are the ways to foster? Long term vs. short term; What does “the child’s goal” mean? How is that determined? By whom? What role does the foster parent play?; Why do kids in care go to lots of different homes? Why do some end up in group homes?; What do most kids need from a foster parent?; How do you actually adopt from foster care?
