What is the Heart Gallery?

The Heart Gallery is a traveling photographic and audio exhibit created to find forever families for children in foster care. The Heart Gallery of America is a collaborative project of over 80 Heart Galleries across the United States designed to increase the number of adoptive families for children needing homes in our community.

Now, in its sixteenth year, the Heart Gallery model is being replicated in many communities across the country. Although many of our children were removed from abusive and neglectful situations, they still have hope. They love to laugh, to learn, and to be with their friends. Most of all, they dream of finding a forever family to be their own.

Looking for love -- at the mall

MILFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut's Department of Children and Families is using Valentine's Day to open an exhibit of photographs featuring children waiting to be adopted. The Heart Gallery exhibit opens Wednesday at the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford. Agency officials say it's an opportunity to increase awareness and hopefully interest in adoption. A phone app, called "Live Portrait" will allow those viewing the exhibit to get information and videos of the children featured in the photographs.


We have found this program beneficial in finding families for our children. We ask that as you view the children, consider that they live in our communities. Respect their right to privacy, and be aware that they may attend school or church, or play at the local park with your children and relatives. The availability of their pictures leaves our children recognizable and vulnerable to negative attention. Although we strive to protect them, we need your help. Thank you!
