Through Love INC, Christians are living out who they say they are by putting their faith in action and providing help, hope, and God's love to neighbors in need. They are building caring relationships and life skills with those who are struggling, and moving beyond the expressed need to help address the underlying issues that contribute to poverty and hopelessness.
