On Friday, August 12, UCAN hosted our annual Professional Foster Parent appreciation banquet titled “Jamaica Me Happy” at our new Nichols Center headquarters. The event included an awards presentation, great food, raffle prizes and a musical performance by Chicago’s own Ifficial Reggae Movement.
Michael Ann Wiley, UCAN’s Licensing, Training and Recruitment Supervisor provided a special thank you to all attendees by stating, “You open your heart and pour into our youth. We thank you for being more than foster parents by being true to caregivers.” We were pleased to recognize the dedication and commitment of foster parents who play such important roles in the lives of our youth.
