Client Spotlight: Indiana Heart Gallery Helps Children Find a Forever Family

by | Jun 4, 2013

Transform Consulting Group is helping Hoosier children find an adoptive family to call their own. We manage the Indiana Heart Gallery for the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS). The Heart Gallery is a compelling traveling exhibit featuring remarkable portraits of children in need of adoptive families. The Indiana Heart Gallery was created by DCS in 2007 as one way to help these incredible children share their stories and encourage families to adopt. Many of the foster children featured in the gallery are older or special needs children, minorities, or members of a sibling group. All are considered hard-to-place children. Our goal is to keep the Heart Gallery moving until all of the children are adopted!

Heart Gallery Photo 2We work with partners across the state to host the exhibit of beautiful photos of foster children waiting to be adopted to raise awareness of this issue and to recruit potential adoptive families. A picture is truly worth a thousand words, one look at the gallery reveals hope in spite of difficult circumstances. Although many of the children were removed from abusive and neglectful situations, their photos show they love to laugh, are eager to learn, and enjoy being with friends. Most of all, these children dream of finding a family to call their own.

Share the message with others about the Indiana Heart Gallery and the many children waiting to find families. There may be a family in your community who is willing and interested in opening their home and heart to a child in need. Please encourage others to attend a mini-gallery or view the online gallery here. Upcoming gallery events and locations are also available online.
