Here at Love INC, our main focus has been eviction prevention, predominately through financial assistance. In addition, we have focused on service projects and being a quality resource referral center. But recently, we have come to the conviction that poverty alleviation can also be about reconciling people’s relationships. After 10 years of ministry, we have long known that operating on a “Needs Based” relief work is not sustainable. We have been quick to provide food, clothing, shelter, money to meet perceived needs. But pouring in outside resources is not sustainable and can exacerbate the feelings of helplessness and inferiority.“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared beforehand for us to do…” Ephesians 2:10
God wants His mission to be ours. That is why we are looking to launch Jobs for Life this year!
JfL teaches timeless biblical principles concerning work and the ways those principles are applied in the marketplace. Through this training, men and women develop character and become connected to a Christian community of support to help them obtain far more than just a job. They experience life, a life filled with confidence, self-control, coaching, learning, and faith.
Please, read through our information packet above (or download the high quality version here) to learn more about what we are doing and how you can be involved!
