Thank you for signing our pledge to help children and families thrive! Will you help us raise awareness about these critical issues?
Right now, many Illinois children and their families are trapped in a multi-generational cycle of racial, social, and economic inequality. And these same families are disproportionately impacted by foster care.
This month alone, more than 300 children will enter the foster care system in Illinois—children in your state, your city, and your neighborhood.
Worst of all: many of these children end up in the Illinois foster care system when they don’t really need to be. Why? Because their families lack the resources, assistance, and opportunity they need to create a healthy home. We understand what happens when symptoms of poverty are mistaken for child neglect – children often enter foster care.
This is why we’re redoubling our efforts to get families the resources and assistance they need before a crisis hits.
But to meet the ongoing demand for these vital services, we need your help today.
We rely on the support of caring people like you to connect children and families to the resources and opportunities they need to be successful.
