Our Mission

Heart’s Home is an inter­na­tional Catholic non-profit orga­ni­za­tion that works to pro­mote a cul­ture of com­pas­sion around the world through a range of char­i­table and cul­tural efforts.

  • Heart’s Home’s missionaries provide intimate, one-on-one support to individuals in some of the most deprived areas of the world. With 46 centers in 24 countries in five continents, each Heart’s Home center plays an indispensable role in its surrounding community, as the volunteers befriend and assist poor and socially isolated people in the area.
  • Heart’s Home’s efforts are not limited to the any single population. The organization also works on a global level to reaffirm the intrinsic value of every individual through cultural initiatives in the fields of art, business, science and education. The International Center for a Culture of Compassion in Woodbourne, NY is Heart’s Home’s main venue for its efforts to spread its message of compassion throughout society as a whole.

In 2005, Heart’s Home was granted the spe­cial con­sul­ta­tive status within the United Nations (ECOSOC)(Fr), on the basis of its work to pro­mote human dig­nity and of its con­tri­bu­tion to the Millenium Development Goals. Since then, Heart’s Home has opened a center in Geneva, Switzerland and has played a role in var­ious ECOSOC activ­i­ties dealing with human dig­nity.

To ful­fill its mis­sion to spread com­pas­sion throughout society, Heart’s Home bases its work on the three fol­lowing pil­lars: com­pas­sion, com­mu­nity, and prayer-life.
