SCCS Re-launches Traveling 'Heart Gallery' To Promote Foster Care and Adoption



The Heart Gallery is a traveling exhibit of photographs of local children who are currently in foster care and awaiting adoption. The children are boys and girls of all ages who are waiting for a permanent family to love, care for, accept and make them feel safe and secure. The children dream of finding a forever family to be their own. The Heart Gallery will be on display throughout the year at various locations in Summit County. For more information on the Heart Gallery, please call (330) 379-2055.
