A presence of compassion...

Heart’s Home is an inter­na­tional Catholic com­mu­nity of vol­un­teers who give their time and hearts to live out and inspire in others a gen­uine “cul­ture of com­pas­sion.” Since 1990, we have been reaching out to people from every walk of life, espe­cially those most socially iso­lated, in some of the world’s most trou­bled areas. Walking with those whose hearts are wea­ried by lone­li­ness, we want to offer the com­fort and hope of God’s love through per­sonal life-trans­forming rela­tion­ships that reveal the beauty and dig­nity of each person.

We also work to infuse com­pas­sion into society at large, through lec­tures, art and other cul­tural ini­tia­tives, because we affirm the cen­tral place of the human person in all social, polit­ical, eco­nomic and cul­tural life. The International Center for a Culture of Compassion (ICCC) was founded in 2007 to sup­port this world­wide effort. With a spe­cial con­sul­ta­tive status at the UN, Heart’s Home works closely with ECOSOC in its efforts to pro­mote human dig­nity.
