Love INC of Sheboygan County is a partnership of local churches working together, across denominational lines, to serve people in need in their community.
Existing resources operating independently are not adequate to meet current and growing levels of need. In addition, one church alone cannot deal with all the complex issues of poverty. It takes churches working together, across denominational lines, to meet these multifaceted needs. Furthermore, Love INC can do what the others can't. Agencies, charities and government can provide a safety net to help those in need, but it can't Love and bring transformation like Love In the Name of Christ can.

We truly do bridge the gap between community needs and resources.
