Review for LOVE INC OF PIERCE CO, Puyallup, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

the blessing of individual in the community. When clients are referred to us, they are so grateful that someone took the time to listen and to assist in their time of need.

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

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