Thinking of buying or selling a house this year? If you work with The Luby Group of @properties, you’ll also be helping find homes and “forever families” for children in foster care, thanks to the group’s new partnership with Barrington non-profit, Let It Be Us. The Luby family real estate team will donate a portion of each 2018 sales commission to help Let It Be Us inspire foster care adoptions in Illinois.

Let It Be Us Founder and Executive Director, Susan McConnell says this exciting new partnership will help make the world a better place for Illinois children in foster care.

“It’s going to make all the difference in the world to our work and to the betterment of the children we serve. Of the almost 17,000 children in Illinois foster care, we know that 54% of them will never return home,” McConnell says. “So our programs, which find these children new forever families, now has additional funding coming from The Luby Group, which means our work can be more successful. This is a groundbreaking partnership and I couldn’t be more pleased to work with such a fine group of outstanding people who value the lives of these children.”

Luby Group founder, Suzanne Luby says the team was searching for a unique opportunity to give back to the Barrington community and that the Let It Be Us partnership simply makes sense.

“As realtors, we are in the business of helping families satisfy housing needs, whether they be upsizing or downsizing. Let It Be Us has a common goal of finding homes for children in Illinois, but with a different focus. The children Let It Be Us serves are in dire need of foster or adoptive care. As a mother and as a parent, I think the Let It Be Us mission is more urgent than ever because every child deserves a family and every child deserves a home.”

Suzanne says the team hopes to support Let It Be Us in multiple ways.

“Our goal with this partnership is twofold. First, we want to bring more attention to the efforts of Let It Be Us by promoting their programs and events with the help of our reach and relationships. Second, we will be donating a portion of every sales commission earned in 2018 to the organization. We hope that, in some small way, this new partnership will help children in Illinois foster care find their forever homes.”
