What is Love INC?
Love In the Name of Christ of Worthington is a group of local churches that want to do more to help their community. As a result of this desire they formed a local Love INC affiliate. This affiliate is based on a proven national model that networks local churches, church volunteers, and community organizations together to help people in need. Through Love INC, churches and individual Christians are mobilized to work together, across denominational lines, to provide coordinated help to neighbors in need. Needs could be as simple as providing a ride to a medical appointment for someone without transportation, or more in depth, such as coming alongside a family that has recently lost a job and is struggling with overdue bills by connecting them with both resources and people.
Founded in 1977, today there are more than 150 Love INC affiliates in 30 states, representing a network of more than 9,000 churches, 6,000 community-based organizations, and 300,000 volunteers meeting more than one million needs each year. The Love INC National Movement assists communities in developing new affiliates and supports existing affiliates by providing training, technical assistance, marketing materials, networking opportunities, and best practices.
