Events

Project Zero connection events are great opportunities for waiting kids and open and approved waiting families to come together in a non-threatening, fun environment to interact and get to know each other. Every month, Project Zero hosts at least one connection event with the sole purpose of building hope in waiting kids and ultimately bringing them together with the right forever family.

These events are also a great time for volunteers to join us on the 'road to zero' and for individuals, businesses and churches to use their areas of expertise to pour into the lives of waiting kids!
