Gap Ministries provide resources or services to meet ongoing needs
that are not currently being met by agencies, or Partner Churches. to “fill the gaps.”

When Gaps in care are identified in the community Love INC works with the Partnership of Churches to create new ministries to better meet the needs of our neighbors. We are constantly on the look out for new opportunities to care for our neighbors. Have an idea for a new ministry? Get in Touch!

Love INC's Gap Ministries

The Gallatin County Love INC Clothes Closet is open to the public on various days and times throughout the month. The clothing is always FREE. The store is staffed by volunteer workers from our local partnership of churches. Learn more HERE.

One Saturday of every month Love INC volunteer mechanics offer their time and expertise to repair cars for FREE. Love INC is often able to obtain parts for the repairs at a reduced price from generous local auto parts stores. Car Clinic participants are asked to help pay for these parts, but the labor is free. There are certain things our volunteer mechanics simply can’t do, but there are a lot of things they can do. This important ministry can always use more mechanically-inclined volunteers!

This ministry helps meet household furniture needs. Furniture tems are  donated  and partner church volunteers deliver it.

This ministry provides free donated firewood that is then delivered to clients

The Linen Closet is a service provided by Love INC and local partner churches. Together we provide FREE sheets, pillowcases, blankets, towels, and washcloths.

The Linen Closet is available to individuals and families who are in need and residents of Gallatin County. If you need linens and can’t afford to purchase these items call the Love INC Help LINE at 587-3008. Our Help Line hours are 10am-2pm Monday through Thursday.

Interested in helping run a shift at our bi-weekly Linen Closet? We’d love to chat with you about that!

In our world today, computers have become a necessity for both school work. Through the Computer Ministry, we come alongside individuals and families in the Gallatin Valley by providing them with a refurbished computer 3 years old or newer.  

These computers are thoroughly tested, donated, computers. They include a hard drive, keyboard, mouse, monitor, and word processing software.

Holding crosses are small wooden crosses with smoothed edges. Many of our clients find comfort through these crosses. The crosses and handmade fabric bags are made by partner church volunteer carpenters and seamstresses. They are passed out to people in need of spiritual support and given to the hospital chaplain to use as well.

Would you like to receive one of these holding crosses? Call our help-line at 587-3008. One of our volunteers would love to help you with that.

Are you interested in providing some of these handmade crosses and/or fabric bags? We have a written template you can use to guide you in the process. Contact us and we’ll make sure to get one to you!

 

 

Handmade quilts are such a treasure to have. One of our clients recently received one from our Quilting Ministry and she wrote the sweetest note to us thanking us for the gift and letting us know she had never owned a quilt before. She couldn’t believe someone would make one and give it to her for free.

Are you or your quilting group interested in helping provide a quilt or two to our Quilting Ministry? We’d love to talk with you about that!
