This event is hosted by Illinois State Representative Allen Skillicorn and Let It Be Us in an effort to tackle the troubling issues, and provide solutions, surrounding foster care and adoption in Illinois and surrounding his jurisdiction. Hear from our experts and our very special guests.
Let It Be Us is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with evidence based programs offering clear solutions to the problems that exist in Illinois foster care and adoption. “We look forward to working with Allen Skillicorn and other Illinois State Representatives and Senators as we work to help our leaders understand the issues and help usher in solutions to some of our biggest problems in child welfare,” says Susan McConnell, Executive Director of Let It Be Us. State Representative Allen Skillicorn adds, ““It is a privilege to host such an important forum for inspiring foster care and adoption to find loving homes for needy children in Illinois. Unfortunately, our state ranks at the bottom in acquiring permanent homes for waiting children. It is especially critical to avert the terrible tragedies we have seen in our area.”
Let It Be Us Foster and Adoptive Parent Recruiters and Coaches will be at the even to welcome guests and discuss foster care and adoption opportunities that currently exist in Illinois and in Northern Illinois.
