I started as a volunteer for LOVEtheLOU from Grace Church 6 years ago when I learned of the work being done by the organization with the intercity youth. Growing up a poor black kid I can deeply identify with these kids, and felt, and still feel I can help make a positive difference.
LOVEtheLOU, I believe first and foremost exemplifies the heart of Christ, who was alway close to the needs of the society. Christ was very very approximate, in proximity. The nearness to the brokenness, the poverty, the social outcast. Those things written about Christ, his acts, and actions were primarily out on the hill sides, among the people.
