Loss is a concept that is all to familiar to children in foster care. The idea of a forever family is seemingly out of reach to many waiting children. Through no fault of their own, they find themselves living in the foster care system. Many have moved from place to place with no sense of permanence. Some of our children are considered "harder to place" because they have special needs or belong to a sibling group. Others are older who have endured the system for years. All of them have one thing in common: their desire for a place to call home..... The mission of Project Zero is to help make their dreams a reality!
