Heart’s Home

Heart’s Home (Points-Cœur) is an inter­na­tional char­i­table orga­ni­za­tion founded in 1990 by Rev. Thierry de Roucy.

It pro­vides com­pas­sion and hope for dis­ad­van­taged and socially iso­lated indi­vid­uals throughout the world, striving to forge inti­mate, long-term bonds with these people.

Heart’s Home also com­mits itself to spreading a “cul­ture of com­pas­sion” in var­ious cul­tural fields, including art, edu­ca­tion, busi­ness, science and pol­i­tics.

Today, the orga­ni­za­tion has spread to 21 coun­tries, with more than 1,400 vol­un­teers serving 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.
