Let It Be Us is hosting an Adoption and Foster Care Information Fair in McHenry, Illinois on Saturday, January 19, 10:00am – 12:00pm. Meet our Home Study Experts from The Luby Group. Part of becoming certified to be foster or adoptive parents includes passing a home study – making sure your home is safe and ready for a child or children. The Luby Group will be at this event to help you learn and prepare for your home study. REGISTER HERE.
Listen to a panel of experts in adoption and foster care and meet two different licensing agencies including the Department of Children and Family Services. All of McHenry County and surrounding areas are in dire need of parents for children in need of adoption and foster care.
This event is brought to you in a partnership with CASA of McHenry County. According to the Director of CASA of McHenry County, (Court Appointed Special Advocates), 40% of all children in foster care in McHenry County are placed with families outside of McHenry County due to a lack of licensed families within McHenry County. Illinois is home to almost 18,000 children in foster care and 54% never return home.
There is no financial cost to become a foster and/or adoptive family. Single parents, two parent families, and same gender families are encouraged to attend this event. Please register for this event here. To become a sponsor or receive further information regarding this event please contact Let It Be Us Executive Director, Susan McConnell, at email@example.com.
The media is welcome to attend this event and interested members of the media may contact Susan Stoga at firstname.lastname@example.org.
