adopt foster children in Broward County

The Heart Gallery's mission is to provide innovative programs that help to promote the adoption and enrichment of Broward's foster children. It is one of over 100 independent heart galleries across the country, the first Heart Gallery was established in 2001. We work closely with ChildNet and the local foster care providers to seek adoptive families and other connections for these children. Locally established in October of 2006, the first exhibit was introduced in Broward the month of April of 2007.

The Heart Gallery of Broward County is a traveling photography exhibit of foster children who are waiting to be permanently adopted. The Gallery is unique: in concept- it is displayed in many public places just like an art exhibit- and in execution- every photograph is a vibrant composition taken by a professional photographer. Coupled with a bio card that describes each child's personality and interests, the inner spirits of these unique children are brought to life. The Gallery presents an emotional appeal to the community to help: to adopt to volunteer to donate money or goods The Heart Gallery provides a solution. It raises awareness of a major need and draws the community together to help solve it.
