Our Impact

There’s nothing more powerful than churches working together to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ.

Over the last 16 years, Love INC has connected our Church Partners and volunteers to over 5,500 families in the Upper Yakima Valley. Together, we have been able to meet over 13,500 needs and build relationships with individuals and families. Caring for them holistically, our neighbors are met with dignity and respect. The impact? Transformed lives. Transformed churches. And transformed communities.
