You’re invited to join us in-person at War Memorial Stadium or virtually for our 10th annual Walk for the Waiting fundraiser! The Call, Immerse Arkansas and Project Zero are linking arms virtually again this May to raise money and advocate for all the children across Arkansas who are waiting for more foster families to open their homes, waiting to be adopted families and waiting to be mentored.
While the pandemic has created challenges for our collective mission, it has even more so strengthened our resolve to ensure that every child in Arkansas has a family. So to remind ourselves of the critical nature of this work, we’re offering a new mantra for the same mission of Walk for the Waiting: Every Heart Needs a Home!
In the state of Arkansas alone, there are nearly 4,600 kids waiting in foster care, 298 of those are waiting to be adopted and nearly 200 will “age out” of foster care without a forever family this year. But you can help change that!
