It only takes one to change the life of a child in foster care.

There are over 21,000 children in foster care in the Illinois – nearly 600 just in Lake County – and every one of them needs and deserves a safe, stable, and nurturing family. But we are facing a real crisis.

Since the pandemic began, the number of children in foster care has continued to increase and the number of potential foster care parents and families has declined. So, we need your help.
