EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14/CBS4) — State and local leaders gathered last week to celebrate the launch of the Heart Gallery of El Paso, an initiative hosted by the Paso del Norte Community Foundation that uses photography to raise awareness of and support children in the region who want to be adopted.

It is the first of eleven such programs that will open across Texas thanks to recent state funding.

In addition to the launch, the Paso del Norte Community Foundation, the sponsor of the initiative, announced Valeria Contreras as the Executive Director of the Heart Gallery of El Paso.

The Heart Gallery highlights children and youth who want to be adopted by helping the community learn about their unique stories.
