A New Heart’s Home Center
in Washington State

We are very excited to offi­cially announce the opening of the first ever Heart’s Home on the West Coast! Located on the campus of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, this center will be run by young stu­dents and workers wishing to spread com­pas­sion on the campus. Gonzaga is a Jesuit University where many stu­dents develop a strong desire to serve others.

The 4 stu­dents making up the com­mu­nity are Jessica, a phi­los­ophy major who works in a nearby Women’s Drop-In Center; Margaret, a nursing major who does a lot of work at var­ious hos­pi­tals in Spokane, Victoria, a Sociology major who leads many Catholic stu­dent orga­ni­za­tions, and Amy, a Kindergarten teacher who is studying for her Master’s Degree in Religious studies.
Between the 4 com­mu­nity mem­bers we will be able to meet a wide diver­sity of people in the Spokane com­mu­nity. We are also excited to bring a pres­ence of Heart’s Home to the GU campus with invi­ta­tions to School of Community and other events in our home. We are very glad to be able to bring Heart’s Home to the West Coast of the U.S.A.

Spokane is not a very big city but there is a large home­less pop­u­la­tion and a high poverty rate. We believe the calling to found a Heart’s Home here will con­tinue to be very fruitful among the University and the Spokane com­mu­nity. We trust in your prayers.
