The statistics are staggering for children waiting for their forever home, right here in AR. According to The CALL's brochure, 7,000 abused or neglected children spend time in foster care in Arkansas every year. The aim of The CALL is to launch affiliates in all 75 counties in Arkansas and to recruit and train an abundance of available Christian families, waiting to take children into their homes.
Immerse Arkansas helps youth ages 16-22 who find themselves in one or more of the following situations: aging out of foster care; homeless; runaway; or victimized through human trafficking or sexual exploitation. According to Immerse Arkansas' brochure approximately 500 middle school & high school students in Pulaski County were reported as homeless last school year.
Project Zero believes that every child who is waiting in the foster care system deserves to have a loving, nurturing home and the safety and stability that home provides. They have one goal: no waiting children. According to Project Zero's flyer, there are over 5000 children in foster care and nearly 500 are available for adoption.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. (James 1:27)
