Love INC is a Clearinghouse of information, and a conduit between the poor & needy and those who have resources (financial or otherwise). They screen requests for financial help or other services, assuring the need is legitimate. They then refer the client to community service agencies who may be able to help, finally contacting area churches for benevolence funds on behalf of the client. Phone screeners also assist the client in looking ahead to make certain that they will not be in the same situation next month.

Another facet of Love INC is their “Gap Ministries,” providing links between client & community in various forms—the Pierce County affiliate offers furniture, bedding, clothing, and cordwood ministries, to name a few. They also offer training classes for clients on money management.

Love INC’s director, Sherry Phinisey, is a dynamic woman of God, whose passion for helping those less-fortunate is electric and contagious.

find a way to increase their "sphere of influence."

Excellent agency that provides thorough and complete care to its participants. An agency that truly seeks to meet the heart of needs for people and minister to them with strong love and compassion. It is growing with amazing stability. I have attended 3 fundraisers, fulfilled hours of internship with volunteering and met many new, wonderful people with this agency. If you are a person in need or a person looking to team with an agency that is doing powerful work in Pierce County - look no further - Love Inc is the agency you want to partner with.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Love and compassion - an amazing heart for hurting and needy people. They extend grace and goodness to many.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do what I could to bring in more funds, resources and gifts to help them expand their vision.
