While we can’t gather, let’s celebrate National Adoption Month together online!
It’s an event for the entire family!

Saturday, November 14, 2020
6:00-7:00 P.M.

Streaming Live Event—appetizers & meal delivery available

The Heart Gallery of Pinellas and Pasco is a program of Gulf Coast JFCS, highlighting local kids through galleries online and in local businesses to find them forever families. These kids are teenagers, sibling groups and special needs children of all ages.

At the end of the day, we lay our heads down to sleep in the comfort of our own bed.  Heart Gallery children lay their heads down in a stranger’s home or group homes, dreaming that one day, the bed they sleep in will be in their own room, in their forever family’s home.

The Heart Gallery helps find adoptive families for the hardest to adopt children in foster care that have already been through the typical adoption search process without success. The Heart Gallery works tirelessly to help these children throughout their journey and assist individuals and families looking to adopt.

With more than 100 children in our Heart Gallery network at any given time in normal circumstances, the COVID-19 pandemic has lengthened the time it takes to match families with children and to finalize adoptions. This delay is placing a greater demand on the Heart Gallery program in supporting these beautiful children until their special day arrives.

We hope you will join us, learn more about our program, the kids and support our efforts. Our goal is to ensure these amazing youth don’t age out of the foster care system before finding their forever family.

Your support helps their adoption happen as quickly as possible and gives these children a sense of a normal childhood, a reminder they are special and loved!

Your contribution makes a lifetime difference!
