Nationally, every year 24,000 children living in foster care turn 18 and “age out” of the system. Most of them are put into the world without their own housing, financial support or emotional support. Many will become homeless and less than 3% will earn a college degree.
Every child the Heart Gallery helps to find a family is one less child that ages out. 100% of your donation is tax deductible.

We are always looking for donations of goods and services – especially in regards to our Gallery. Are you a professional photographer or videographer? We would love to hear from you!
We would love to have you join us at Focus! – Fun in the Sun, May 11, 2018! Unable to attend but still want to help out? Consider hosting your own fundraiser at your home or business. We would love to talk with you about ways to expand Heart Gallery’s reach in your community!
Do you have space for a single portrait of one of the children from our gallery? Would your business, church or school like to help our cause by teaching your community about foster care, adoption, and the need for forever families right here in our area? We would love to work with you to create a special program for your business!
Perhaps the easiest way to get involved? Telling your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers about Heart Gallery. We’re on facebook, twitter, Instagram, and can also provide you with information to send over email. We always love to hear from our partners!
