How old do I need to be to volunteer?
You must be 18 years old to volunteer.
Can I bring my children with me to volunteer at a Heart Gallery Event?
The day is intended to focus on and honor the children in foster care who are attending the event. We respectfully request that you do not bring your own children to an event.
Are there any requirements needed to become a volunteer?
Depending on the role you select when signing up to volunteer will determine the amount of interaction you might have with a child.
Can I meet a child who is featured in the gallery now?
If you are interested in a child on the gallery, please fill out the inquiry form for that child by clicking on their photo. It is more likely the children who have not been photographed would be in attendance at an upcoming event.
Do the children understand this is an event to promote adoption?
Each child’s readiness is different. It is up to the child on how they would like to view the event. If you have questions or do not know how to answer a child’s question at an event please locate a DCS Team member to offer you guidance and support.
