MANY HEARTS, ONE MISSION.
The Heart Gallery of El Paso is a community engagement initiative that uses professional portraits displayed at host locations throughout El Paso combined with community outreach to connect families interested in adoption to select children in the care of Child Protective Services that are looking for their forever family.
At the core of this outreach is a simple picture. But, it's anything but simple. Our volunteer professional photographers capture a child's spirit in every shot, bringing to life their unique personalities in ways that words cannot.
They say, "I'm here. And I'm special."
Working Together to Support Children in Foster Care Across Texas
Each day, more than 6,000 children in the Texas foster care system are waiting to be adopted and find a place to call home.
The Heart Gallery was born with the purpose of utilizing the power of photography to capture the individuality and dignity of children living in foster care. Statistics show that the communities that have a robust Heart Gallery program have higher adoption rates.
As a community initiative, donors are very important to help sustain our mission and increase the number of youth we are able to support.
Our work is only possible with the support of our community, volunteers offering their services, and hosts who display our gallery for others to see.
