ABOUT HCV: Heartland Charity Volunteers is an organization for women 21-30 who dream of sharing the Gospel Call, living and ministering in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul. We participate in a year of service among the poor in faith-based facilities. We live in community with other young women volunteers. We serve others and are served by them, we discover our faith stories, we share experiences and insights with our community and we deepen our experience of prayer. St. Vincent de Paul, Father of the Poor, once said, “We cannot better secure our happiness than by living and dying in the service of the poor.”
