Story of Hope

Annette’s Story

Annette lost her husband to suicide and was struggling to manage her finances through  the deep grief she endured. She found herself in financial hardship and was unable to pay her gas bill.  After receiving a shut off notice, she reached out to Love INC for help. Love INC, along with the Community West Foundation, paid the entire bill because of the kind generosity of donors like you. Thank you for enabling Love INC to be the hands and feet of Jesus and bring hope to Annette’s life.
