The church doorstep is a frequent destination for people in desperate need. But most churches cannot fully meet the needs of every homeless family, single mom or hungry child who asks for help.
“...let us love not only in words or in talk, but let us put our love into action and make it real.”
– 1 John 3:18
Love In the Name of Christ South Bay (Love INC SB) connects people in need with community agencies, church ministries and caring Christians so that those
in need are not turned away.
By connecting people with the right resources or combination of resources for their unique situation and circumstance, Love INC actually provides hundreds of different types of services. And because our goal is transformed lives, Love INC's focus is not only providing needed services but also building relationships. Not only are physical needs met, but emotional and spiritual needs are also met. People receive God's love through the caring Christians who serve in His name.
How Love INC SB Works
People who need food, clothing, shelter, utility assistance, counseling or help of any kind, call or are referred to us by churches, community agencies, neighbors, friends, or anyone who knows about our ministry.
Validate and Provide
We screen, verify and validate the need, which may also reveal underlying causes.
Needs are then matched with resources from our church network. They are equipped to provide for a variety of physical, social and spiritual needs. This partnership provides their members opportunities to serve outside their church walls.
We follow through with each family or individual to insure that their needs have been met.
We work with the local church ministry, volunteer or community agency to provide the family or individual an ongoing relationship and any additional support they may need.
Love In the Name of Christ South Bay relieves hardships of local families, regardless of faith, in a multitude of physical ways. What makes us different from secular social service organizations is our hope that God’s love and care will be revealed by every church or volunteer involved with a hurting family or individual.
