Heart's Home: Spreading Compassion since 1990


Heart’s Home USA is the American branch of Heart’s Home (Points-Cœur), an international Catholic organization that serves as a source of compassion and hope to a wide variety of troubled, disadvantaged and socially isolated individuals throughout the world. Since its founding in 1990 by Reverend Thierry de Roucy, the organization has spread to 21 countries, having placed more than 1,400 volunteers in 43 centers.

In 2005, Heart’s Home was granted special consultative status within the United Nations (ECOSOC) on the basis of its work to promote human dignity and its contribution to the U.N.’s Millennium Development Goals.

Heart's Home USA is made up of three centers, located in Brooklyn, upstate New York and in Spokane, WA.
