LOVE Christian Clearinghouse is a network of churches, working together as the 'Body of Christ' to unify the church around the needs of the poor. This process enables Christian churches to reach out to the poor beyond their own doors. LOVE uses all the resources in the community - including social service agencies and church outreach ministries to meet the needs of the community.
