Making a Difference at
Chiara Home

Brett and Mirjam

“My volunteer service at Chiara Home will belong to those unforgettable things in my life.  Every person I met touched my heart and I learned what it means to take care of a person as well as really care about them.”

Mirjam and Chris

"A few years ago, God sent our family, not just one angel, but a group of angels. Those angels are the people who work and volunteer at Chiara Home.  There are very few places I can take my son Brenden for childcare.  Chiara Home is the one place, besides family, that I can trust to care for him."
