Event Date/Time

The mission of the Heart Gallery of Sacramento is to improve the lives of children in foster care by promoting permanency and adoption primarily through a collection of portraits of children waiting for a family to call their own. The portraits, which help to capture the spirit and personality of each child, are displayed within our community. We are an all-volunteer community organization combining the art of photography with a passion for recruiting permanent homes for children who need forever families.

Information booths will be hosted by EMQ Families Firat, Koinonia Family Services, Lilliput Children’s Services, Sacramento County DHHS and Sierra Forever Families.
