The Pulaski County Adoption Coalition was formed years ago to further the cause of adoption in our county. The coalition was made up of DCFS staff, attorneys, adoptive parents, foster parents, adoption professionals, and others who were passionate about adoption. In 2009, our coalition obtained its' 501c3 non-profit status.
As time went on, we realized that although many of our events were productive, there was much more that needed to be done in the effort to link waiting kids and adoptive families. Project Zero was born in the fall of 2011 as a result of that need for change. PZ is a ramped up version of our coalition with the renewed goal of deliberately and purposefully pursuing out-of-the-box ways to find forever families for the kids in our county and state who are waiting.
