The mission of Love INC of Broward is to mobilize local churches to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ. Our Vision Statement: God will establish a Love INC presence throughout Broward County by partnering with churches, people, and resources transforming people in need and their communities with compassion and hope.
Love In the Name of Christ (Love INC) is a faith-based nonprofit 501(c)3 that partners with churches offering people in need help aimed at transformation and freedom in the Name of Christ so they can overcome poverty. We offer resources by participation, basic life skills, and relationship building.

How does Love INC work?
The heart of Love INC is the Connect Center. Volunteers receive help requests, conduct intakes, action plans, and journey with clients to freedom from poverty and brokenness. Love INC identifies gaps in services and resources and helps churches develop ministries to fill those gaps including Service Projects, Budget Mentoring, Career Mentoring, Personal Care Pantry, and Counseling services.
Why Love INC?
Love INC enables churches in a community to pool their resources and services so that people in need are not turned away. As churches join together to show Christ's love to their neighbors, communities see exciting results:
People in need receive help from Christians using their gifts and talents.
Local churches work together modeling unity in the Body of Christ, and lives change.
