Foster Care

Did you know that the Illinois Center for Adoption & Permanency maintains a database of families who wish to adopt, and that we regularly match those families with children who are waiting to be adopted?

Our Child-Centered Recruitment Specialists regularly learn of children who are in need of families, and we refer registered families to those children’s case managers on an ongoing basis.

If you are a licensed Illinois foster family, and you wish to adopt a child or children from foster care, please consider registering with AICI. To get started, download our family registration form today.

If you are not yet licensed, or if you have basic questions regarding foster care adoption, please explore the foster care or adoption sections of our website or contact us with any questions you may have.

These activities include, but are not limited to, the provision of services to clients. We affirmatively welcome and support all stable, nurturing families, including members of the LGBTQ community, and we strive to be culturally competent in serving all clients.
