The agency promotes the interests of foster children by raising awareness and promoting adoption through a traveling photography gallery, one of more than 100 Heart Galleries around the nation. The first opened in 2001, and the Broward Country gallery went public in 2007. The Broward exhibit tours public spaces with portraits of foster children by more than 20 professional photographers.
Volunteers can assist the Heart Gallery’s mission by serving as a guardian ad litem (a legal advocate for a child), tutoring and mentoring children, offering job training, or educating youths in a foster home about life skills. Persons can provide in-kind donations of household products or clothes in good condition. Additionally, businesses and individuals can make tax-deductible cash donations.
