About Us

Love INC

Lives and communities are transformed when people come together to meet real needs for real people. We believe that the best way to love and serve God is to love and serve people and that by working together we can make a difference through the power of love; not lip service love; not conditional love; but real Love in the Name of Christ.

Our Mission

At Love In the Name of Christ, our mission is to connect families in need with local churches, service agencies, and community programs that can help them. We believe that by serving others and demonstrating the unconditional love of Christ in tangible and practical ways, God will work through us to transform lives and families in our community.
Love INC’s proven model connects local churches, individual volunteers, and community organizations and mobilizes them to work together to provide coordinated help to those in need. In addition to meeting immediate needs with goods and services, the launch of our relational mentoring and life skills training programs are designed to address the deeper needs of the families we serve in an effort to reduce needs and eliminate dependency over time.

Love INC Staff

Love INC currently works with 14 partner churches and 61 service agencies in North Marion County including the cities of Aurora, Donald, Gervais, Hubbard, St. Paul and Woodburn where we are located. Since December of 2011 we have worked together with our partner churches to help 820 families in need.
At the heart of Love INC are thousands of volunteers, motivated by the desire to share God’s love and inspired by Jesus’ example of selfless giving. Love INC enables caring people to pool their time, talent, and treasure to create a network of resources and services that respond to concerns in the community.  Together, Love INC volunteers and partner churches provide tangible assistance, encouragement, and hope.  They meet immediate needs in tangible ways, and in many cases, teach people life-skills so that they can become more self-sufficient and God-reliant.
