Finding forever familes for children is what Let It Be Us strives for and The Luby Group with @Properties, whose business it is to find homes, shares that vision. The Luby Group with @Properties will be donating a percentage of every real estate commission to Let It Be Us. Together, the two organizations will be making the world a better place for children in Illinois foster care.
Suzanne Luby says the team hopes to support Let It Be Us in multiple ways. “Our goal with The Luby Group/Let It Be Us partnership in 2018 is threefold. First, we want to help bring more attention to the efforts of Let It Be Us in the adoption, education and support of children in Illinois foster care. Second, we will be donating a portion of every real estate sales commission to the organization. Finally, through our reach and relationships, we will promote Let It Be Us programs and events in an ongoing effort to support their mission.”
Susan McConnell, Founder and Executive Director of Let It Be Us is excited about the partnership. “It’s going to make all the difference in the world to our work and to the betterment of the children we serve. Of the almost 17,000 children in Illinois foster care, we know that 54% of them will never return home. So our programs, which find these children new forever families now has additional funding, which means our work can be more successful. This is a groundbreaking partnership and I couldn’t be more pleased to work with such a fine group of outstanding people who value the lives of children.”
Suzanne Luby continues that the partnership simply makes sense. “As realtors, we are in the business of helping families satisfy housing needs, whether they be upsizing or downsizing. Similarly, Let It Be Us has a common goal of finding homes for children in Illinois, but with a different focus. The children Let It Be Us serves need foster or adoptive care. We share a mission that centers on housing and families,” Suzanne says. “As a mother and as a parent, I think the Let It Be Us mission is urgent because every child deserves a family and every child deserves a home.”
