Heart Gallery

Group 1

The Heart Gallery of Central Texas is a portrait exhibit and community education/outreach initiative featuring children in the foster care system who are waiting for adoption.

We work to find forever families for children through direct recruitment opportunities and education of foster and adoptive families.

At the core of this outreach is a simple picture. But, it's anything but simple. Our volunteer photographers capture a child's spirit in every shot, bringing to life their beautiful personalities in ways that words cannot. They say, "I'm here. And I'm special."

The Heart Gallery of Central Texas connects children available for adoption with loving families.

The Heart Gallery has awakened the hearts and homes of many people in our communities. By sharing a child’s story and putting a name and face to a child in need, The Heart Gallery helps children make connections to their forever families every day.

The Heart Gallery of Central Texas not only introduced us to our girls, it opened our door to adoption that didn’t stop with Olivia and Rose. Bringing them into our family gave us graduations, a wedding, and grandchildren. Olivia and Rose make our family better and we can’t imagine what life would be without them.
