What is Heart Gallery Philadelphia?
Every child deserves a family. In Philadelphia, there are hundreds of foster children who are longing for just that. Heart Gallery Philadelphia is collaborating with the Philadelphia Department of Human Services to bring these children closer to that dream. To achieve that goal, Professional Photographers volunteer their time and skill to create beautiful, compelling portraits of foster children in Philadelphia. The goal is to raise adoption awareness, but more importantly to give voice to the many foster children in our community looking for their “forever family”. Ultimately, our hope is that through these portraits prospective parents will be moved to adopt. These children are considered harder to adopt, ranging in age from 5 to 17, minorities and/or in sibling groups. They are deserving of our attention, our compassion, our help, and our respect.
