Recruiting Foster and Adoptive Parents for Waiting Illinois Children of All Ages – Including Teens URGENT

July 28 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Let It Be Us is recruiting foster and adoptive parents for waiting Illinois children of all ages, especially teens. This town hall styled event will include a panel of experts along with representatives from licensing agencies as well as the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. Our guest speaker will be a foster and adoption-in-process parent. There will be time for questions and answers. This event will feature coffee and a light breakfast.

Anyone can adopt from foster care or be a foster parent, as these programs do not discrminate against age, income, marital status, gender or sexual orientation. Adoption from foster care and being a foster parent is free of cost. This is a wonderful opportunity to become a parent and champion a child.

This parent recruitment events is sponsored by Howard & Howard Community Reinvestment Fund, which is funded by Howard & Howard employees and benefits communities in which Hoard & Howard offices are located. This event is also sponsored by American Signs by Tomorrow, Chicago’s premier banner, poster and signage partner.
