The Clearinghouse is open Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Thursdays from 10am-2 pm.

 
 

In the Clearinghouse Intake Specialists, which are caring Christian Volunteers from our Churches, are there to answer the phone calls from our Neighbors. The Intake Specialists will go through an intake evaluation with the Neighbors which can take 45 minutes. The Neighbor is offered a prayer and then the information goes to our Clearinghouse Coordinator for verification and clarification.

WHAT THEY SAY…

Clearinghouse and Intake Specialists photo.jpg

As an intake specialist at Love INC:

  • I have grown in my faith. The important message at the forefront of Love INC, made clear by the example of the leadership, is that God is in charge. We have to discern and be obedient to his will. Though the problem of need is huge, it is not bigger than God. He will empower his people to Love in the Name of Christ and to serve in ways that transform.

  • I have learned a lot about poverty, but I also know that I have a lot more to learn about the thinking of people in need and about my own thinking in response to need. How do we help in ways that transform, in ways that help rather than hurt?

  • I have been privileged to engage over the phone with people whose lifestyles and needs are very different from those of people I have known in my work, church, or social life. I am inspired by the faith of many of the neighbors in need whose trust in God is deep, despite the dire circumstances they are experiencing.

In the almost two years I have served as an intake specialist, I have received more than I have given. -Pat Sather


LOVE STORY

We received a card from one of our Neighbors recently served in Auto Repair. It expressed “I want to thank you for your kindness and generosity in helping fix my vehicle. It truly was a blessing answered!”

She continued in a hand-written letter, “I am grateful I can drive around safely and now begin to take my mother, who had a stroke last July to water therapy. I honestly couldn’t have done it without your help and I am very grateful for your kindness and prayers. Thank you again, God Bless.”


WE NEED YOUR HELP

As Love INC continues to grow and become more recognized in Sheboygan County, our list of Neighbors continues to grow as well as their requests. In the Clearinghouse we strive to answer calls and process Intakes in a timely manner. We also do our best to convey compassion as well as sharing the heart of Christ in our messaging. We listen and pray with each Neighbor. We have a small group of Intake Specialists who are dedicated to answering the calls on T-W-Th from 10-2. We are seeking out more individuals who are feeling called to serve in this capacity in the Clearinghouse; known as the “heart” of the organization. Please take the time to prayerfully consider how you can help us in the Clearinghouse either as an Intake Specialist or in Data Entry.
