Love in Action: Three Ways to Support the SOS Illinois Mission

girl-cutting-paper-hearts

Each February, we are reminded of the many acts of love that fill our organization. From the care provided by our compassionate Foster Parents to the leadership of our generous corporate partners, love is never in short supply at our Villages and Casa Tepeyac. This year, we are asking you to participate in our Love in Action Initiative geared towards strengthening and expanding our mission. With your help, SOS Illinois can continue to provide exceptional programs and services to the children and families in our care and communities. Here are three ways to move your love into action this month:

Invite a Loved One to Become a Professional Foster Parent

Our dedicated professional Foster Parents sit at the heart of the SOS Illinois mission. Reaching qualified and energized candidates to take on this important role is easier with the help of our wonderful supporters. Do you belong to a Chicagoland faith community or church group? Are you active in your neighborhood or involved in a local career center? Put your love for children and your heart for mission to good use this season by sharing this employment opportunity with those in your circle. SOS Illinois trains and employs full-time Foster Parents that care for up to six siblings in a single-family home in one of our three Village communities. If you or someone you know would like to become a Foster Parent and are interested in seeing if you’d be a good fit in the SOS Children’s Villages Illinois family, let us know by filling out this form.

Become a Monthly Dream Maker

If you are a current donor looking to stay involved throughout the year or are a new donor excited to make a lasting impact, consider joining our monthly giving program, Dream Makers. Dream Makers’ automatic monthly gifts provide the sustained resources needed to help the brothers and sisters in our care thrive in three very important areas:

  1. Educational Development
  2. Health and Wellness
  3. Cultural Enrichment

As a Dream Maker, your monthly contribution is the easiest and most efficient way to support SOS Illinois. Gifts of all sizes make a difference. You can easily start now as part of our Love in Action Initiative and change your giving at any time!

Follow Us on Social Media

Following our pages and sharing our posts on social media are two of the easiest, most effective, and cost-free ways to show support to SOS Illinois! By creating a diverse, active social media presence, SOS Illinois is able to reach outside of our networks and into the hearts of those around the globe.
