The mission of Project Zero's Mentor Program is to bring caring individuals from our community and unite them with adoptable children growing up in foster care. We want to provide each child with a mentor to support and encourage them through various transitions in their life.
Arkansas currently has 500 children available for adoption through DCFS; 160 reside in Pulaski County. Our children need stability and permanency. Many foster children spend time in shelters or group homes, and often transition from placement to placement. They struggle with the lack of stability and consistency. We feel mentors can provide this stability that our children so desperately need.
Project Zero has created a one on one mentoring program to unite adoptable children with caring individuals. The program will provide the child with a long-term, stable support system. The process consists of completing an application, performing background checks, and In Home Consultation, and a staffing with DCFS. Project Zero will walk you through every step and be there to answer all of your questions.
