Our Impact

There’s nothing more powerful than churches working together as the body of Christ.

Every year, Love INC of Southern Chautauqua County connects its partner church volunteers to nearly 200 adults and children in their community. Together, we are able to not only meet needs, but meet each person where they’re at. Caring for them holistically, our neighbors are met with dignity and respect, while our partner churches are free to focus on serving according to their strengths. The result? Transformed lives. Transformed churches. And transformed communities.
