Jen Lilley, a musician, a mother, and the nation’s leading celebrity foster care advocate who is herself a parent of two sons via foster care. On May 1st to mark the beginning of National Foster Care Month, Lilley is partnering with the foundation Project Orphans to establish a neighborhood here in the U.S. to give orphans and children in foster care safe and loving homes, with a focus on permanency and adoption. To raise awareness and money for Project Orphans, Jen is launching May 1st the #VoicesThatGive contest, an opportunity to give creators from virtually all walks of life including singers and actors a chance to win the grand prize of $10,000, a walk-on roll on Hallmark Channel’s hit series “When Hope Calls” and much more. This week Lilley also launched her new weekly podcast Fostering Hope, which aims to help normalize and support adoptive families of all types, foster ethical practices, and champion for safe, loving families for the children who need them. In each episode, actress Jen has open, honest, informative, funny, and sometimes heartbreaking conversations with the most influential people in the world for foster care and adoption. Jen aspires to encourage people who are currently fostering children AND inspire more people to begin the deeply rewarding fostering journey. The first episode is available now to listen HERE. Jen Lilley’s creative prowess does not end when the director yells cut, she is also a singer and songwriter, who looks to release her debut album LILLEY. Jen’s lifelong passion for music coupled with being inspired by 1960’s girl groups to create a collection of timeless songs that are set to have a whole new generation singing along. Her music exudes the same sultry ferocity of Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton, with Phil Spector’s wall of sound treatment via Rosie Danvers and her 50-piece orchestra. To support the album, Jen will be launching a contest inviting creatives from virtually all backgrounds to enter. Advocating for foster care and adoption is something that speaks to Jen Lilley’s heart. While growing up in Roanoke, Virginia, Jen’s parents were considered the “unofficial foster parents” due to their line of work – her father was a judge, while her mother was a director of a women and children’s charity – making their home a “safe house” of sorts. Jen was awarded the National Educators Award for her tireless work in Guatemala and is known for advocating children’s rights where she actively supports foundations that focus on protecting children against physical and sexual abuse, human trafficking, and the world water crisis. Jen is a celebrity ambassador for the child abuse and treatment organizations Childhelp, Projec Orphans, ECPAT, and The Dave Thomas Foundation.
