Clearinghouse

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.

  1. Do you guys help with rental or deposit assistance or can point me in the right direction?
    I’m a single mom of 4 who has been living with my mom these last few months since we moved here. She leaves in a few days so we need to be out of here too. We found a place but i need 1st months rent 1175 which I have and a 1000 deposit which i don’t have. Plus having to buy fuel. It’s a lot to swing all at once. I’m panicking on how I’m going to do this. Someone mentioned I should reach out to you guys.
