Heart Gallery Helps Children Find Homes


The Heart Gallery is a New Jersey charitable organization dedicated to helping foster children find families. The project makes portraits of foster children who are at least 3 years old or are in sibling groups, and then places those portraits on exhibit. The goal of the project is to inspire people visiting the exhibit to get involved as mentors, adoptive parents, employers or volunteers.

The 2005 exhibit features 60 portraits by 27 project photographers, all of whom donated their time. The exhibit recently appeared in various sites around Puget Sound, and opened June 12 at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, N.J. A sampling of the portraits is available at dshs.wa.gov.
