How will the funds be used by The CALL, Immerse & Project Zero?
1) To mobilize the Christian community to foster, adopt and volunteer for children in foster care, in Pulaski County and 51 other counties across the state.
2) To transform youth from crisis into "overcomers" through direct youth programs combined with support for families who foster or adopt. Core services for youth include coaching, mentoring, connection to drama-informed therapy, a drop-in center, supportive housing, relationship building events and life skill training events, retreats and counseling.
3) To help kids waiting to be adopted by: raising awareness about the need through the Arkansas Heart Gallery and short films featuring waiting kids, by hosting hope-building and connection events for waiting kids and open families with the goal of finding the right forever family for every waiting child.
