foster and adoptive parent recruitment

Learn about the Illinois children in need of foster care and adoption through foster care. This town hall style event features foster care licensing agencies in and around Rockford, Illinois.  This event takes place at the First Free Church, Room 250, at 2223 N. Mulford Rd, Rockford, IL 61107. To see just some of the waiting children visit the Heart Gallery of Illinois. REGISTER HERE

Whether you have your foster care license, or not, this is a great way to learn how to start or continue your journey through foster parenting and learn about opportunities regarding adoption through foster care. (Do you know that the majority of the foster care licensing process is now available online? Yes, the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) has made the licensing process much more user friendly.)

A breakfast of bagels, fruit and coffee will be served.  This is a free event. This is not an open house but rather an informative event that begins at 9:00am and ends at 12:00pm.

These parent recruitment events are funded in part through a gift from Howard & Howard Community Reinvestment Fund, which is funded by Howard & Howard employees and benefits communities in which Hoard & Howard offices are located.
Questions about the event may be directed to Susan McConnell, Founder and Executive Director of Let It Be Us, at SusanMcConnell@LetItBeUs.org.
The media is welcome and inquires are directed to Susan Stoga, Let It Be Us Board Member and Partner of Carson Stoga Communications, at Susan@CarsonStoga.com.
