About Love In The Name Of Christ

The Organization

Love INC is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, transportation, and money management. To accomplish this, we assist on an individual level and on community levels. While assisting the immediate needs of families in crisis, we also seek to transform community practices that tend to grip citizens in the hand of poverty; practices that affect community development, child care, health care, and more.

Love INC is an unabashedly Christian effort to help our neighbors in accord with the teachings of Jesus Christ. It’s membership is made up of volunteers from the 62 Livingston County churches of all denominations that belong to Love INC. Love INC volunteers, working from the offices on Grand River in Howell, interview applicants who are seeking help from one of the member churches. Centralizing this process allows the member churches to specialize in specific areas of need. For example, one church may provide diapers and baby clothes, another may concentrate on furniture, while yet another may focus on food. The result has been greater efficiency in the delivery of assistance and the eternal gratitude of church secretaries who have been historically overwhelmed with requests for help during times of economic downturn.
