The story of a Love INC affiliate

The challenge: Christian leaders in a Midwest city realized that though their community had many churches, few were working together. Some people in need received help, but others simply cycled from church to church. Few lives improved enough to actually break through poverty.

The solution: Christian leaders in this community founded Love INC based on a simple strategy. The goal is to bring community churches together across denominational lines and inventory their collective resources, ministries, and talents of the people in the congregation.

Next, match those resources with people in need. Then, train church members to walk alongside people in need through a network of relationships and supportive services that together transform lives.

The impact: Today this Love INC affiliate represents a network of more than 80 churches working in unity to "love their neighbors."

They are reaching the real needs of more than 7,000 people each year through life skills training, affordable housing, job training, day care, transportation, parenting resources, and more.

Through caring relationships they are offering the greatest gift: hope.
