Lawrence Hall Hosts Thanksgiving Dinner for 150 Foster Care Alumni

CHICAGO, IL

Lawrence Hall was proud to welcome 150 current and former youth in care at our Main Campus for the Foster Care Alumni of America – Illinois Chapter, 6th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner. Organized by the Foster Care Alumni of America – Illinois Chapter, the event was attended by guest speakers Senator Daniel Biss, Representative Litesa E. Wallace, Representative Greg Harris and Illinois DCFS  Director BJ Walker. Understanding that the holidays can be a difficult time for young people currently in foster care or who have aged out of foster care, the organizers at Foster Care Alumni of America – Illinois chapter started a tradition of their own, connecting and celebrating within the Foster Care Alumni community. The Thanksgiving Dinner at Lawrence Hall’s Main Campus, was their 6th annual.
