We are intentionally relational; we seek every opportunity for trained volunteers to love on our guests by matching their needs with church, agency, and community resources. We focus on the person not the need. Charity focused on a person’s needs rarely transforms. However, services focused on the person, delivered with accountability and love, In the Name of Christ, can transform volunteer, person being helped and our larger community. We focus on prevention; addressing the various circumstances often leading to more serious issues that threaten wellbeing and stability, keeping housing insecure people housed, and ensuring those newly homeless find homes.
Love INC exists only to serve its member churches. Mobilizing churches, their members and resources produces volunteers that are Love INC-trained to provide a variety of direct services to guests entrusted to our ministry. Love INC staff does not do direct services; rather it guides the serving processes. Love INC cultivates leadership in serving our guests.
The heart of Love INC is the Help Center, where trained, member church volunteers and resource navigators receive requests, assess the need to be reasonable and manageable, respond with wisdom and discernment, and make referrals for help and follow up insuring that needs were connected with resources.
Through the Help Center, Love INC identifies gaps in services and resources in the community, and helps churches develop ministries to fill the gaps. Gap ministries are available for assignment to interested member churches. These include dental ministry, minor home repair, budget mentoring, lullaby baby ministry, personal care pantry, car repair and more.
