Parenting Kids in Need
Foster care provides a temporary home for children who cannot remain with their birth families. It is a wonderful way to help children at a difficult time in their lives. This part of our site allows families to explore foster care in greater detail, including the types of foster care, the steps to becoming a licensed foster parent and the financial aspects of foster care.
Licensed foster families who are interested in adoption may also register with our Adoption Listing Service to learn more about waiting children in Illinois.
