A Volunteering Program

Heart’s Home pro­vides the oppor­tu­nity for young Catholics from 21 to 35 years of age to vol­un­teer for either domestic or inter­na­tional mis­sions. They ded­i­cate a min­imum of 14 months to the ser­vice of suf­fering indi­vid­uals in some of the world’s most deprived areas.

Since 1990, Heart’s Home has recruited and trained more than 1,500 young Catholic vol­un­teers from 38 coun­tries.

Heart’s Home’s international volunteers...

  • Form personal relationships with people who are isolated from the community to better provide them individualized support.
  • Act as a link between local services and charitable organizations and people in need so that they may find the best solutions to their particular problems.
  • Welcome members of the community to the center for various activities. Each Heart’s Home is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each center’s volunteers are deeply engaged with the poorest individuals in the neighborhood, welcoming them for meals and special occasions, hosting youth groups for children, and organizing a wide range of cultural and educational activities.
