The Medical Center of Southeast Texas to Host Heart Kids Art Gallery

The Medical Center of Southeast Texas invites the public to visit their Port Arthur Hospital Lobby while they host the Heart Kids travelling art show from Monday, May 14 – Friday, May 31.  This is a program of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Their goal is to help raise awareness for the children who are living in foster care, many for extended periods of time, and are waiting for a permanent family and a life of stability and love.


What is Heart Kids?

Heart Kids is a traveling art show with life size portraits of children in foster care available for adoption. The hope is to raise awareness for these precious children and their need for a forever family.  These children are currently free for adoption and waiting for a family to call their own. A place where they feel safe and wanted. A place they will be able to return to as an adult. They are waiting for someone to love them for who they are and make a lasting commitment to always be there for them.
