An Opportunity to Transform
Amate House fellows live together as a faith-based community committed to living simply and building meaningful relationships with one another. Fellows share together in the richness of each other’s experiences through casual daily conversation and weekly opportunities for reflection, prayer, and discussion.
Build Community, Serve Chicago
Community serves as a base of support for each fellow, assuring that their time spent at Amate House promotes growth and a sense of transformation with a focus on community and social justice leadership. Ultimately, our emphasis on community stems from our belief that no one stands alone—our call to holiness and to service cannot be sustained if we exist in isolation.
Transformation Through Service
Amate House goes to great lengths to fuel the personal, professional and spiritual transformations of each of our fellows. Before you embark on your year-long transformative journey of service and leadership development within the community, our staff see to it that your site placement aligns with your current aspirations and interests, as well as your future career goals.

“Amate House respects and upholds the dignity of all persons regardless of the identities they hold. We believe that creating a just and diverse environment is more than an ideal, but rather at the core of who we are as an organization. We welcome people of every race, religion, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, and family composition. We celebrate all persons regardless of where they may be on their spiritual journey. We value persons of all faith traditions, those with no faith tradition, as well as those who are questioning and exploring. We work to be a community that follows Catholic Social Teaching, which upholds the life, dignity, and equality of all human beings.”Amate HouseInclusivity Statement
