Unless you've researched for it, been in it, or been a foster care parent, you probably don't know the importance of foster care in our community. So many children need our help and foster parents and homes are so critical in giving children the home and support they need.

To support an agency that continues to advocate for foster kids and foster care communities, a Foster Fair is being held right here in the Quad Cities. Several vendors and food trucks will be on hand, plus there are several resources to learn how you can help the foster care community.

Foster Fair Quad Cities

Lutheran Social Services of Illinois is hosting Foster Fair Quad Cities this Friday, June 21st, 2024. This event will have dozens of vendors to shop along with food trucks to fill up your belly this Friday night. The fair kicks off at 3 p.m. and ends at 7 p.m.

Foster Fair Quad Cities will be held at Marketplace at 2500 (2500 53rd Street) in Moline. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of Foster Homes in the Quad Cities community and that is what this fair is for. To educate people and guide them into becoming foster parents or starting a foster home.

Lutheran Social Services of Illinois says that it's alright if you or someone who is interested is not able to commit to fostering at this time. They simply want you and others to come learn about other ways you can help support youth in our community.

Foster Fair Quad Cities is free to attend. If there are any inquiries for those not able to attend but who want to learn more, you are asked to please visit LSSI.ORG/FOSTERCARE.
