Home in the US
Heart's Home started in the US
in November 2003,
with the establishment of a first Heart's Home service center
in the Bronx, NY.
The 6 full time Heart's Home
missionaries staffing the center dedicate themselves to:
the lost and forgotten, especially the
elderly and the disabled, providing services such as shopping,
AIDS and cancer patients, providing end of life care.
with immigrants and minorities- providing services such
as translations, help with filing social security claims,
applying for public housing, getting food stamps…
Testimony of Cyril, Heart's Home volunteer in the Bronx,
two years of service to the poor in The Bronx, NY; the
missionary team of Heart's Home USA became aware of a
large demand from young American Catholics for full-time,
long-term, domestic and international missionary opportunities.
Catholics are particularly interested in joining missionary
organizations with a strong commitment
to community and prayer life, as practiced by Heart's
to this need, Heart's Home USA initiated a recruitment
and outreach program to young Catholics throughout
began in July 2005 with the purpose of inviting young
people to become Heart's Home volunteers, mostly through
conferences in parishes and universities all over the
US, as well as through volunteer fairs.
