Launched in 2006, The Heart Gallery is a museum-quality exhibit of photographs featuring the faces and stories of foster children in Pinellas and Pasco counties. Displayed in malls, churches, YMCAs, and other public venues, the gallery enables would-be adoptive parents to “connect” with any of the 130 displayed children in need of permanent families.
