Jennifer McAndrews, Let it Be Us Board Chair, has been an advocate for openness in adoption and children in the foster care system for years. She and her husband, Peter, are not only the parents of 6 boys, ages 13 to 24, they are the long term foster parents and legal guardians of two little children through foster care.
Jennifer and her family became interested in being a Safe Family as a way to reach out to help others and see it as a way to give back to other children by giving them a temporary home while their parents work to get back on their feet. Jennifer’s first hand experience with foster care, guardianship and the court system brings unprecedented leadership to the mission of Let it Be Us.
Jennifer is also a skilled organizer and fundraiser whose commitment to campaigns has proven successful over the many years with St. Anne’s Church in Barrington, Illinois.
