Story of Hope

Sharon’s Story

Sharon is a single woman who moved into a new apartment with no appliances. Love INC had originally sent a voucher to Habitat for Humanity for her to get a refrigerator. After a month, Sharon was unable to find a refrigerator that would fit into her apartment. Love INC then referred her to the Cleveland Department of Aging Senior Services for assistance with the appliance. Sharon informed Love INC that she was able to get the agency to assist with the refrigerator. Love INC spoke to Sharon’s social worker and agreed to pay the remaining balance of the appliance. In partnership with the Senior Services Department, a payment was made on Sharon’s behalf to get the refrigerator. Love INC doesn’t just offer one solution and send people on their way. We are dedicated to following up with people until their needs are met to the best of our abilities. #LoveINCStoryOfHope
