About Love INC Heartland

Love INC Heartland is a partnership of nearly 30 churches within the Wright County Area. We are committed to coming alongside our neighbors in need and helping them live their God-given potential.

What Is Love INC?

Love In the Name of Christ is a proven model that networks local churches, church volunteers, and community organizations together to help people in need. Through Love INC, churches are mobilized to work together, across denominational lines, to provide coordinated help to struggling neighbors. All Love INCs provide basic needs such as food and clothing through generous donations, while more established Love INC ministries also provide services such as mentoring, life skills training, and/or transitional housing programs.

Communities We Serve

At Love INC-Heartland, we serve the communities of Cokato, Corcoran, Dassel, Delano, Greenfield, Howard Lake, Independence, Loretto, Lyndale, Maple Plain, Mayer, Montrose, Rockford, Watertown, Waverly, and Winsted.

We are one of many affiliates under the umbrella of Love Inc National.

Without Love INC

When care is not coordinated, needs can be overlooked or duplicated, and people are not served in a holistic matter.
