FRANKFORT, Ill. – As May unfolds, the nation turns its attention to the vital cause of foster care. With National Foster Care Month in full swing, Illinois is taking the opportunity to highlight the significance of foster care and encourage local families to step up and make a difference. 

According to Let it Be Us, approximately 20,000 children in Illinois are currently in foster care, seeking a safe and nurturing environment. These children, placed under the care of the Department of Children and Families Services (DCFS) by local courts, are in need of loving homes and support. 

This month serves as a reminder that opening one’s heart and home to a child in need can bring immeasurable joy and make a lasting impact. For those interested in learning more or becoming a foster family, valuable resources can be found online at
