Greenville, SC (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
Over 50% of children who are legally available for adoption and go through the South Carolina Heart Gallery are matched with a family.
Between October 2012 and the end of September 2013, 73 new families started the adoption process through the South Carolina Heart Gallery. Millie Qualls, Program Coordinator of the South Carolina Heart Gallery, attributes many of these new families to the support and resources provided by the Foundation established to support the Gallery’s work.
“We can directly or indirectly connect these new families to the work of the South Carolina Heart Gallery Foundation,” says Millie Qualls.
Clark Smith, Chairman of the Board for the Foundation, stressed the role of the Foundation's video website, social media presence, and TV commercial series in seeing these great results.
“Using video content to tell the story of the Foundation and the work we do instead of using text and pictures is the future of the Internet,” Smith said. “Content is so important to the SC Heart Gallery Foundation."
While some foster care systems struggle to cope with increasing demand, it is encouraging to know that the South Carolina Heart Gallery and its supporting Foundation are doing an incredible job of finding forever homes for the state’s waiting children.
The South Carolina Heart Gallery Foundation is a fundraising foundation for the SC Heart Gallery, a statewide organization that works to find Forever Families (adoptive families) for South Carolina’s waiting children.
