Moss Foundation will receive Heart Gallery’s Child Advocate of the Year award as dedicated to assisting other charitable organizations throughout the nation under the leadership of President Chad Moss. Created by Moss & Associates, a national privately held construction firm headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the foundation prides itself in giving back to communities and enhancing surrounding areas. Moss Foundation has made an impact on local not for profit organizations such as Arc Broward, Broward Public Library Foundation, HANDY, Jack & Jill Children’s Center and others.
Heart Gallery of Broward County launched in 2007 as a traveling photography exhibit of foster children who were waiting to be permanently adopted and has evolved to work closely with ChildNet and local foster care providers to seek adoptive families and other connections for these children. Now in its 8th year, this event, the largest and most successful fundraiser that the organization hosts, benefits not only the children, family and partner organizations it serves, but the whole community.
