Today there are over 14,000 children who have suffered abuse, neglect or abandonment in Illinois.
At no fault of their own, these children have been removed from their families to ensure their safety while their parents receive the help and support they need. These children need foster families who are willing to love them for a season and reconcile them safely home to their families. When family restoration is not possible, adoptive families are needed to love them for a lifetime.
There are not enough foster and adoptive homes to care for the vulnerable children in our area.
The Restore Network is a non-profit organization that engages Christian families to work together within the local churches in response to God’s call to care for vulnerable children and families.
The Restore Network invites you to join us at one of our monthly Foster & Adopt 101 workshops designed to provide basic information to individuals interested in learning more about foster care and adoption. During the workshop, you will learn more about the needs that exist within the foster care system and the vision behind the Restore Network's community and church partnerships.
By the end of the workshop, you will learn about the licensing process to become a foster or adoptive family and what supports the Restore Network can offer you. In addition, you will learn all the ways you can volunteer and use your gifts on one of our support teams.
These workshops are held monthly in each of our county locations. Feel free to join us at whichever location best fits your schedule. We hope to see you there!
Originally created for the 168 Film Festival, ReMoved follows the emotional story through the eyes of a young girl taken from her home and placed into foster care.
