Let It Be Us is working with an older child who is a product of the foster care system who is is need of a job, a place to live, a family to care about him, or all of the above. Anyone who can help in any way is encouraged to complete this form IMMEDIATELY.
This boy is a very, very good kid. He has graduated from high school and has attended community college. He is independent and responsible. He is interested in foreign cultures and speaks some Japanese. He has a part-time job but he needs a full-time job. He is responsible. He is quiet. He is likable. He does not have a family. He needs people who can care about him. He just needs a chance in life.
We are reaching out to our Let It Be Us community to step up and help. This boy has been involved in our Mentorship Program for a few years now and with our help he has become all he can be, but he needs your help with his next phase of life. Your help could change the outcome of his life. This boy is the perfect example of a child who has aged out of foster care, with absolutely nothing.
Let It Be Us is a 501(c)3 Child Welfare Agency working together with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) as well as all licensing agencies throughout Illinois. Our goal through our recruitment events is to increase the number of licensed foster parents in Illinois and to help children in emergent need and those who are challenging to place find families. Our work helps caseworkers keep children out of shelters and off of office floors at night.
