Welcome to the Heart Gallery of Jacksonville

We are dedicated to bringing awareness about the individuality, spirit and qualities of children in foster care hoping to be adopted Into a “forever family”.

In 2005, the Heart Gallery began as a traveling photographic exhibit showcasing stunning portraits of waiting children––as captured by the lens of professional volunteer photographers.

It is through focus and clarity that your eyes, hearts and homes can be opened to the needs of children in care in Duval and Nassau County, Florida.

Under the direction of Family Support Services of North Florida, with the help of our community-based partners, the Florida Department of Children and Families, our judicial partners, and the generosity of volunteers and supporters, the Heart Gallery will continue to be an avenue for finding forever families for our waiting children.
