Inspired by Faith, Strengthened by Community

Amate House fellows dedicate themselves to a year of service, community and faith. They serve with fellow Chicagoans working for justice in their communities. Not only do they impact their own futures, but the futures of thousands of others. 


Since 1984, Amate House has been putting love into action through service to Chicago area communities.

Over those years, we have served over 200 nonprofit organizations and schools.
