An anonymous source once said, "There are no unwanted children, just unfound families." Project Zero agrees! And we are passionate about finding them.

Did you know that out of the over 400,000 children and teens in foster care in the United States, over 100,000 of them are waiting to be adopted? One hundred thousand children and teens whose parental rights have been terminated and who are languishing in foster care, waiting, hoping, praying, and longing for a forever family. Project Zero believes every waiting child deserves a place to call home, and we are committed to thinking outside the box to make that dream a reality.

Our Mission

The mission of Project Zero is to diligently and enthusiastically promote adoption through the foster care system with the ultimate goal of finding a forever family for every child who is waiting.

Requirements to become a foster parent

There are myths and misconceptions about what you need to qualify as a foster parent.

Foster parent requirements vary by state. Parents must be at least 21 years of age in Arkansas. However, there cannot be more than a 45-year age difference between the child and the parent.

Marriage is not a requirement for fostering. Single individuals may apply.

Every foster parent in Arkansas must:

  • Pass a background check
  • Have a physical exam
  • Complete the Arkansas Home Study
  • Complete required training classes
  • Pass the home inspection
  • Attend face-to-face interviews with a state foster advocate
  • Maintain financial stability

In addition, foster homes must have enough room for the foster child. This includes 50 square feet of bedroom space for personal belongings.

Reach out to an Arkansas child-placing representative for additional information.
