Love INC Model

The Clearinghouse Model shown above is the foundation of all Love INC affiliates and includes the steps below:

  1. Receive request for help. Requests are received either directly from a person in need or a person in need is referred to the local Love INC office by a network church or local agency.

  2. Assess the need. Specially trained Love INC volunteers or staff screen the request for extent of need and legitimacy, and discover any deeper issues fueling the crisis.

  3. Provide help. The request is referred to the most appropriate Love INC partner church, agency, or faith-based organization. Staff or volunteers swing into action, providing whatever resources or outreach programs are appropriate to address the need(s).

  4. Follow up. The Love  INC office reviews the outcome. Was the immediate need met? Is there a core issue that requires longer-term attention? The follow-up also provides an opportunity for the recipient to become connected to a church if he or she so desires.
