On November 18 at 3:30 p.m., Littleton Mayor Debbie Brinkman will cut the ribbon for the official opening of the new offices of Love In The Name of Christ (INC) at 5745 S. Bannock in Littleton. Love INC was recently recognized by the Littleton City Council for the help their volunteers gave people displaced by the Windermere fire last year. “Love INC has been providing support and guidance through our partner churches to individuals in the community for over 10 years,” stated Kathryn Roy, Executive Director. “We want to thank South Metro Housing Options who offered us this space when they relocated their offices. It provides us the room we need as our services expand.”
People who call the Love INC Clearinghouse are furnished information about the resources and assistance available in the area. Volunteers provide transportation to medical appointments, diapers for new mothers, and other aid and information. During the Windermere fire emergency, Love INC arranged for Navigators – trained volunteers– to help the displaced people find their way through insurance issues, new housing issues, etc. The Navigator program proved so beneficial that it is now an ongoing service.
IMPACT, Love INC’s newest program, offers free courses that teach goal-setting, debt reduction, building healthier relationships and more. IMPACT courses encourage and equip individuals to reach their God-given potential. Recent IMPACT graduates have dramatically changed their and their families’ lives by reducing debt and improving their relationships. Volunteers from Love INC’s 36 partner churches play a key role in these programs. IMPACT courses are held Thursday evenings at a church located in Centennial and now on Wednesday evenings at a church in West Littleton. The next sessions begin in January.
The new Love INC offices are now closer to Love INC’s Renewed Treasures Resale Shop located at 6512 S. Broadway. Also, it will provide space for meetings, for training volunteers, for the Clearinghouse call center, for coaching those taking IMPACT courses plus more storage room for incentives for the IMPACT program.
