Christie Erwin Bio Picture

Christie Erwin

Executive Director
Project Zero

Christie Erwin’s deep love for children led her and husband, Jeff, to become foster parents in 1993, for a private, non-profit adoption agency. It was there that the foundation for Christie’s passion and driving concern for children in foster care was laid. After fostering for eleven years with the private agency, the Erwin’s became foster parents for the Arkansas Department of Children and Family Services in 2004. They fostered over fifty children during their twenty years of fostering.

Christie’s book, The Middle Mom –How to Grow Your Heart by Giving it Away (Grayson Publications, 2009), is her story. The book is the culmination of years of seeing the heartbreak of children in need and is a call for foster and adoptive families who will love, nurture and provide for them. Christie is a 2009 Congressional Coalition on Adoption “Angel in Adoption” award winner and represented Arkansas as the American Mother of the Year in 2016. She was the Chairman of the Pulaski County Adoption Coalition for 4 years as well as co-coordinator of the Pulaski County Heart Gallery and a founding member of The C.A.L.L. (Children of Arkansas Loved for a Lifetime). Christie is the founder of Project Zero and serves as Executive Director. The Erwin’s have 6 children ranging in age from 9-30; (including two who were added to the family through adoption), two daughters-in-law, one son-in-law, and two precious grandchildren.
