The Michigan Heart Gallery is a traveling photographic exhibit featuring photos of youth currently in the foster care system waiting for their forever family.  MARE worked with over 50 professional photographers from all across the state to make this year's 2018 display possible. The display will showcase 143 waiting youth

Below is this year's short film. The film's theme was inspired by a quote from Josh Shipp, a youth motivational speaker. The quote says, "Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story". The film highlights youth in foster care who have hopes and dreams for their future, who need just one caring adult to help them achieve those goals.
