The 2016 Heart Gallery features the portraits and stories of local children in need of adoption.

The Garcia Center hosts a new Heart Gallery exhibit each fall. The purpose of the Heart Gallery project is to find stable, loving families for foster children needing permanent adoptive homes. Many of the children in the Heart Gallery are considered more difficult to place because they are older or in a sibling group. The Heart Gallery serves as a reminder that children never outgrow the need for parents.

The Heart Gallery of South Texas was launched in 2005 by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. It was started as a community engagement project to help the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services raise awareness of its foster adoption program.
