Did you know that Love INC has a booming furniture ministry? Our neighbors in need have been blessed by the furniture that we have been able to provide with them, along with the hope of Jesus Christ! We are always looking for more donations to bless more neighbors in need. We offer free pick-up! Here are the items that we accept:
couches & living room chairs
stove & refrigerators
kitchen table & chairs
washer & dryers
dressers & end tables
Would you like to bless a neighbor-in-need with one of these gently used items? Please contact Jeannie.
This spring, we began offering workshops for gardening and DIY Home Repair for our New Directions participants. The 13 gardening participants have loved learning about how to start plants from seed and transplant them, and our 12 DIY participants are working very hard on their planting boxes! One of the goals of this initiative is to encourage people to eat healthier, and giving them a place to grow healthier food and teaching them how to do it is certainly a step in the right direction! Here are some pictures of these workshops.
Prepare for preschool through play!
Our play and learn class helps to prepare children ages 0-5 for preschool through play! Playtime includes free play, story time, song time, a cool activity, and time spent talking to other parents about raising a thriving child!

Our 2017 Christmas store was a success!
We served 75 individuals and impacted over 116 lives! Here are some quotes for people who wished to thank those who supported the Christmas store:
“My family and I truly appreciate your kind donations! This is the first we’ve had to reach out for help with holidays. We’ve got four beautiful daughters who will be so happy on Christmas morning.

“Thank you for your thoughtful hearts and helping me while I am rebuilding my life.”
