Heart Gallery

EventS

Heart Gallery of North West Texas

The Heart Gallery of North West Texas exists to connect children who are available for adoption, due to abuse or neglect, with loving families who are interested in adoption. This Heart Gallery is a traveling portrait collection. Photographers give their talents to capture the hearts of our children who have entered the care of Child Protective Services. Volunteers give their time and their voices to display these portraits at events, businesses, churches, and organizations. The mission of The Heart Gallery of North West Texas is to help connect waiting children with adoptive parents.
