Love INC of New Jersey came into existence in 1994 to meet the needs of the Monmouth County community through our partnership with local churches. Churches are a plentiful resource in our community, with caring members who strongly desire to serve their neighbors in need. However many churches encounter obstacles as they try to fulfill their mission to serve. Love INC is dedicated to helping churches transform love into action by carrying out a ministry that is organized, collaborative, responsive and effective.
Certainly the need in Monmouth County is unmistakable as we continue our work which increased after Superstorm Sandy devastated our community. As local agencies are overloaded with meeting so many needs; Love INC stands ready to provide help in ways that agencies cannot.
Every year Love INC provides physical, emotional and spiritual support to thousands of children and adults throughout Monmouth County. We are blessed to have a dedicated staff and a partnership with 139 churches and 34 Monmouth County Agencies. We have a vision for the future and with the support of our many volunteers and donors we can make that vision a reality.
The total requests serviced from all departments of Love INC were 5310 in 2014. The total goods and services to residents in need in Monmouth County in 2014 was $530,136.00. In the last 15 years Love INC has given out $11,674,185.00 worth of goods and services.
God’s love is immeasurable, powerful and unfailing. By sharing that love with others, Love INC can fulfill its calling to mobilize the church and to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ.
Love in the Name of Christ is a faith-based initiative in Monmouth County, NJ with a mission to mobilize the Church to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ.
