Our History

Heart for Home was founded in 2009 when CEO Ginny Douesnard answered the call to a vision God placed on her heart to help less fortunate children in the Philippines. She met the founder of Puso Sa Bahay, Mr. Benjamin Castillo Laurel, and Ms. Aurora O. Montano and partnered to help the children in a small town called Tanza, Cavite, in the Philippines. Since their divine appointment, they have committed to continue helping these children.  In 2018, Heart For Home was incorporated and officially became a 501(c) non-profit organization.  In 2019, we partnered with New Life Tanza to carry out the mission of our work in the town of Cavite.  Pastor Romil and Tess Napila are instrumental parts of our team and the work that we continue to do.
