Fresno County Heart Gallery


Visit the Fresno County Heart Gallery at a Fresno County Public Library near you!

The Fresno County Heart Gallery is designed to find permanent homes and life-long connections for California’s foster children, especially those in Fresno County. The Heart Gallery is a project of the Department of Children and Family Services and many foster care and adoption agencies who work to find permanent homes for children in need and deserving of permanency. Photographers, both professional and amateur, volunteer their time to take compelling and beautiful pictures of youth who are in foster care and are hoping to find a “forever family”. These portraits are then displayed locally in hopes of inspiring Central Valley Residents who would have never seen themselves as potential life-long permanent connections.


We have found this program beneficial in finding families for our children. We ask that as you view the children, consider that they live in our communities. Respect their right to privacy, and be aware that they may attend school or church, or play at the local park with your children and relatives. The availability of their pictures leaves our children recognizable and vulnerable to negative attention. Although we strive to protect them, we need your help. Thank you!
