The Children's Heart Gallery features Arizona children who are free for adoption and want a forever family. While it is a very effective tool for finding families for our waiting children, it also makes the children vulnerable to negative intrusions into their lives. Please help us protect them. If you recognize any of these children or see them in your community, please respect their privacy.
Volunteer for the Children's Heart Gallery-Tucson
The Children's Heart Gallery (CHG) highlights Arizona children in need of forever homes and harnesses the power of photography to capture each child's unique spirit and story in a profile. The profiles are featured in exhibits online, in art galleries and in larger public forums like libraries, airports and malls. Heart Gallery exhibits have helped raise awareness about adoption and have helped find homes for hundreds of children.
Photo Shoot events are held several times throughout the year in Arizona. The events are a time for each child to have quality, professional photographs taken to create profiles for them. The next one will take place in Tucson September 22, 2018.
