The Call to Action: Foster our Youth! Coalition in partnership with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and the Illinois Center for Adoption and Permanency is hosting a free event entitled “Call to Action – Foster our Teens” with the specific goal of finding foster and adoptive families for Illinois teen youth within the foster care system on October 22, 2016.
Open to any individual interested in fostering teens, adopting teens from foster care, or who would just like to learn more about the fostering and adopting process! The event includes overviews of the foster care license process, the adoption from foster care process and a speaker’s bureau featuring teens in the foster care system. The program for this event will be youth developed and delivered through youth voice. Agency representatives will be on hand to answer questions from attendees. Tickets are free, however due to limited space, reservations are suggested. Come to hear our teen speakers talk about their foster care journey and the immediate need for foster homes, gather information and begin helping youth in foster care!
