Recruiting Adoptive and Foster Parents – Finding Forever Families – Let It Be Us

September 23, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

foster and adoptive parent recruitment

Learn about the children available for adoption through foster care. These town hall style events feature adoption recruiters from agencies throughout Illinois as well as keynote speakers such as the Director of Illinois DCFS, the Medical Director of DCFS, and other knowledgeable experts in the adoption from foster care field. We put the adoption recruiters at the front of the room and we invite potential parents to fill the audience and the work begins. Whether you have your foster care license, which is the first step in adopting from foster care, or not, this is a great way to learn how to start or continue your journey in adoption from foster care.

Each of these recruitment events host adoption recruiters from at least 4 different agencies. We encourage parents to attend as many of these events as possible. The keynote speakers are heroes in the world of adoption from foster care and the information they have for our audience is invaluable. It’s also a great way to review four or more agencies at once to get an idea about which agency might be best fit for you and your family.
