Love In the Name of Christ of Boone County is a unique network of churches and agencies that respond to needs of ordinary people who need HOPE in the midst of a difficult time in life. As Christians, we believe that genuine hope comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ. (I Peter 1:3-4) Unexpected events like the loss of a job, a serious health diagnosis, a failed relationship, or a major home repair can sometimes cause major disruptions to normal life. Hundreds of volunteers are mobilized to care for and walk with people through these challenging times.

Homes from the Heart Apartment Shelter Program
With the support of partnering churches, Love INC began providing housing for families through the “Homes from the Heart” program in January, 2022. A second apartment became available in March, and was immediately put to use. Families in the program receive free rent and utilities for a period of 3 months. During that time, they work with Love INC staff and church volunteers to develop financial and life goals and to create a plan to begin moving toward fulfillment of those goals. Love INC staff monitors their progress and may grant extensions at their discretion. Families attend weekly classes at Love INC, including Affirming Potential, Boundaries, and Faith and Finances. Their children also benefit, by participating in enrichment programs of their own. With this 2-generation, individualized approach, Love INC hopes to tackle the problem of generational poverty and help these families have hope for a better future.
