I met Heart's Home in France, because some of my friends left for a Heart's Home mission. They came back so happy and blessed that I wanted to know more about this organization. I decided to serve Heart's Home in the office in Brooklyn, New York, to know better the organization and to live with the community the charism of compassion. I discovered also the numerous apostolates of the missionaries, who visit the neighborhood, and I learnt how to live a compassionate daily life. The community life was full of joys and blessings, and my daily apostolate in a nearby nursing-home was a real way to learn how to love according to the Holy Gospel.

The Great!

Heart's Home is volunteer/mission where a young person can volunteer about 1-2 years in a foreign country befriending those who suffer most and living a strong community and prayer life with about 3 or 4 other young people. In Romania, our friends were a mix of Gypsies, Hungarians, and Romanians. When we are at home, we have an open door policy for anyone who wants to drop by for a visit - usually children. In the afternoons, we go on apostolates, visiting our friends. We try to befriend those who are most lonely or suffering. It was an incredible experience that I can't describe in words and definitely a life-changing experience.

I don't really understand this question, but for the above question of how frequently are you involved, it's kind of a "whole package" - it's a commitment - not a one time volunteer experience

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't make changes. But a suggestion - learn the language BEFORE going to the country!

Ways to make it better...

I had been more open and given of myself more. The worst experiences were the days I was acting selfish.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

There are a lot of challenges, but none that didn't help me to grow.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Learn as much of the language before going!

The year I spent with Heart's Home USA was a true blessing. I spent just over 14 months in Honduras and El Salvador, and consider it one of the most life changing of my life. I received more than I ever gave and know myself it a more real way. It was a joy to be part of such good work!

My experience with Heart's Home was by far the most formative, awe-inspiring, and beautiful year of my life--living the mission opened me to God in a way that absolutely blew my mind, and the way that our presence in the neighborhood touched those we served was absolutely unbelievable.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the mission is very difficult because you enter into and share the sufferings of a lot of people, and also recognize your own darkness and weakness--but there is much grace and fecundity in these challenges

One thing I'd also say is that...

Heart's Home is amazing

I met Heart's Home through many friends who went on mission as long-term volunteers with them. They told me about their experience and about what they lived with them and it was so beautiful that i really wanted to be part of their work in any way. I applied from France and was sent for a 6-month internship in Brooklyn, NY. I was struck by the way they were present to the people of their neighborhood and by the friendship they had with some of the most lonely and suffering ones. I had the opportunity to join them every saturday on their visits to the home-bound of the close-by Housing projects and it was a real joy. By living in the Heart's Home in this area, I met many people as they were often coming to us for a meal, a discussion, a mass or any other informal activity that can help them to find a way out of loneliness and exclusion. they are very welcoming, faithful and devoted people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the sparkles of joy and gratitude i could read in the eyes of every single people we came to visit!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to find how to give them more money, more time and more means to develop their action and to spread this mission of compassion to maore people who are also striving for frinedship and compassion.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The faithful friendship we had on the people we visited every Saturday. I would have never said that they would take such a place in my heart. They really became real friends in only some months!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Most of them are comitted for all their life to serve the poor and the most suffering ones. That's why they have stories, anecdotes about their former missions. They are full of hope and love and you learn so much living with them!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

spread the Charism of compassion and be present to so many people all around the world! With the help of God, it could change the heart of every single person we meet and help them to love more!

Ways to make it better...

I had more time!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

to make people understand what is their charism as compassion is not something efficient and productive: it is so much different from the business world!

One thing I'd also say is that...

When you meet and experience their charism, you really want to live it in your everyday life!
