“Love has a way of making you feel really comfortable,” reflected the Lewis family, recent transplants from Detroit. The new community, culture, and surroundings were an eye opener, and struggling financially made things even more difficult.  

The love the Lewises experienced was from churches mobilized by Love INC of Newaygo County. When they reached out for help, they received immediate assistance with basic needs and started attending a budgeting class. The knowledge and support Larry and Willie received, combined with their diligence, paid off – literally! “It brought us to a whole new level of thinking about money,” Willie said with satisfaction, “We were struggling and after doing that money management class we had more money than we have ever had in our lives.”

The Lewises have new friends in their new community and new hope. “It has been an eye opener to see how broad the world is, and it came from meeting those people at Love [INC].”
