Let It Be Us, in a strong move of compassionate ingenuity, has established a series of ZOOM webinars on Illinois foster care and adoption, recruiting parents for all children in foster care, including those in emergent need and those who are challenging to place. The first two ZOOM webinars held earlier in March laid the ground work with introductory information that will lead the way for more exploratory webinars focusing on educating the public and recruiting from targeted populations such as Spanish speaking families, African American families, families interested in fostering teens, families interested in fostering children with special needs, and more. Register for an event here.
Future foster and adoptive parents can attended from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Attending a Let It Be Us ZOOM webinar gives people an opportunity to learn about the need for foster parents and teaches them about the need for increased permanency as well as the licensing process. Each attendee also has the opportunity to work with a Let It Be Us Foster Parent Licensing Coach, a free service offered to help people navigate the complicated licensing process in Illinois.
“We’re excited to host these events with the goal of increasing the number of licensed foster parents in Illinois,” reports Let It Be Us Executive Director Susan McConnell. “The Let It Be Us team has curated events that will be educational as well as entertaining. It’s the real stories of trials, tribulations and love that people who are considering getting involved need to hear.”
Two of the events will feature authors of books. The authors have first hand experience with growing up in foster care.
All are welcome to register and attend the Let It Be Us ZOOM Webinars here.
