As citizens of Illinois you are aware of the challenges our state has had regarding the state budget.

Here is an opportunity for you to Let Your Voice Be Heard on some very important legislative activities.

HB2594 Makes various appropriations to DCFS for the care of children served by private agencies and the cost of care reimbursements for foster parents. This Bill addresses many aspects to improve care including adjusting caseworker to child ratio, provide private agencies with financial resources to retain experienced staff and increasing foster parent reimbursement.

Contact your State Representative and Senators and first let them know of the work you do as a foster parent and then share how supporting these bills would support you as you care for the children in Illinois.

Get the facts first hand by listening to some testimonials as part of our HB 2594 Worth Every Penny campaign.
