What is Love in Action Idaho?

Love in Action Idaho is a faith-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that helps connect people who want to give with specific needs in the community through our community giving registry. Just like someone might go to a wedding registry or baby registry to purchase a specific gift, people can go to our website to meet a specific need.

How do I know the needs are legitimate?

We only post needs that are sent to us by a case manager or advocate from an approved service agency, such as a domestic violence shelter, victim service organization, or local police department.  We do not allow individuals to request items or services directly

How does Love in Action Idaho meet these needs?

We purchase the item and send it to the client or we work with the company who is providing the service to pay them directly. We do not provide cash to clients.

How did Love in Action Idaho get started?

I used to work as a case manager for a victim service agency and I noticed certain gaps in the resources available to clients. For example, a client who needed their car repaired to get to work but couldn’t afford it. It was difficult because I wasn’t aware of any resources available to meet those specific and unique needs. I also have been in the situation of wanting to help, but not knowing what people need. So, after years of being prompted by God to move forward with this idea, I eventually started Love in Action Idaho to help create a resource to meet those needs and provide a tool for people who want to help but don’t know where to start.

Why does Love in Action Idaho do this work?

As a faith-based organization, spreading the love of God is the purpose of our work. We believe that love is the foundation of God’s will and we hope that people will feel that love through our work.

How much of my donation will go towards meeting needs?

We don’t use donations for administrative costs, so 100% of your donation will go towards meeting needs.
