love in the name of christ of yakima

Love INC (In the Name of Christ) empowers families to break out of poverty. We go beyond superficial “bandaid” fixes and address the root issues that keep people stuck in their brokenness. The Mission of Love INC of Yakima is to mobilize local churches to transform lives and communities in the name of Christ.
  • The T.E.A.M. (Training, Equipping & Mentoring) Program links families in poverty with trained volunteers from our network of 24+ local churches. Families in the T.E.A.M. Program earn points for their participation. Points are redeemed for material help such as groceries and gas cards to free up their income to pay off debt. Meanwhile they are learning vital budgeting and life skills that enable them to lead productive, financially independent lives.
  • The Connection Center links people in need with needed resources and services in the community.  The dedicated Client Assistance line is 509-453-0214.

A letter from the director of love inc of yakima

take just 38 minutes...

May 4, 2020

I hope you were able to join us for our Spring Online Fundraising Event. Everyone who watched had the chance to hear from our speaker, Lois Tuypi and hear how the TEAM Program prepared two of our graduates, Jessica and Placido, to face the financial stress of the current pandemic.

If you couldn't join us that night, no problem. You can still view the program and share it with your friends and family here.

In the program for the fundraiser, both Lois and Jessica talk about how the unique ministry of Love In the Name of Christ of Yakima can help people not only in the midst of our current crisis, but maybe even more importantly after it is over. The financial education and Life Skills classes offered through TEAM paired with the budget mentoring can help people who are living on the edge today learn to manage their money, set goals and prepare for the future. That is why the mission of Love INC is so important and we can't stop now.
In fact, so far, we have raised over $14,000 from almost 60 donors. But our work can't stop here. Last year's fundraiser raised over $30,000 and, honestly, our goal for this year, before the pandemic, was even higher.

Your generous gift of $50, $100, $250 or even $500 will help us continue to see God transform lives.

During these unprecedented times, we are still moving forward with our mission to mobilize the local church to transform lives and communities in the Name of Christ going into 2020 and beyond. Your gift today will help us continue to serve those in need in our community today.

So please, take 38 minutes, watch the video from Friday night, learn about the ministry of Love INC of Yakima, share it with your friends and family and, if God leads, give generously to support the ministry of Love INC.

Thank you,
Dan Brown
Executive Director
