Mission Statement


Inspired by the Social Mission of the Catholic Church, Amate House supports and develops women and men rooted in faith, dedicated to service and committeed to building a more just and loving society.

Description


Amate House began in 1984 as a program enabling young adults to provide social services in response to the needs of the city and Archdiocese of Chicago, while benefiting from personal, professional and spiritual development opportunities designed to support their growth as leaders for the Church and world. Founded by three seminarians from the Archdiocese of Chicago and a host of other lay and religious men and women, Amate House allows young adult lay persons to explore and live out a vocation to service and to become more compassionate and effective leaders in the process. Every summer, since 1984, a new group of young adults from the greater Chicago area, around the country, and occasionally from around the world, have come together to begin a one-year commitment to faith-based community living and full-time volunteer service work. In exchange for their efforts, they receive room and board, modest allowance, health insurance, ongoing supervision, a strong and supportive community of peers, and structured opportunities for guided spiritual growth and leadership development.
