We are Love INC of the Greater Livingston Area
Love INC stands for Love In the Name of Christ. As a part of a nationwide movement (Loveinc.org), we are a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to meeting basic needs like 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 folks 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. Our mission is to mobilize local churches to transform lives and communities in the name of Christ.
Our vision is to motivate and equip our local Church community to collectively support people in physical, emotional, and spiritual need, leading to self-sufficiency and a relationship with a faith community.
We are a unique collaboration of over 60 churches in Livingston County that provide a wide range of needs. Love INC has a team of specially trained volunteers that build relationships, verify needs, and determine distribution of resources. We work with our partner churches and local agencies to more efficiently and effectively use limited resources.
"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these
brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
