How it works

The Clearinghouse process:

  1. Asking for help. A person in need is referred by either a church or local agency, or contacts Love INC directly.
  2. Qualifying for help. Specially trained Love INC interviewers assess the request, determine the caller’s commitment toward self-help and discover any larger issues fueling the crisis.
  3. Providing help. The request is referred to the most appropriate Love INC church, Love INC ministry, or community agency. Volunteers, material resources, and outreach programs are then matched to the corresponding need.
  4. Following up. The outcome is reviewed. Was the immediate need met? Is there a core issue that requires attention? At this stage, the person in need also has the opportunity to meet with a pastor or become connected to a church if he or she desires. This is often the stage where real hope and long-term relationships emerge.

One thought on “Clearinghouse

  1. Hi! I am a stay at home mom of two (4 and 2.5) and would love to get involved! My husband works and travels a lot so I’m never guaranteed any afternoon or evening without the kids in tow…but is there something I can do WITH my kids? My heart is both to serve and to teach my kids from the start that we are to love others as Jesus did…and what better way than having them serve along side me. Thanks!
