What is BeLoved?

We believe in the power of community! You have heard it takes a village to raise a child. We believe that everyone needs a village. Each of us needs a supportive network of people in our lives, ways to use our gifts, and meaningful ways to engage the world and make a difference.

We believe that we are the people we have been waiting for!  We create innovative solutions to some of the toughest challenges we face as a community.  We try to put love into action daily through these solutions to make our community better. Check out our Projects page to learn more! We invite you to join us through donating and volunteering!

----------------------ESPANOL DE BAJO----
Friends, the storm this week brought this tragedy for an elderly couple in our community. A tree fell on the trailer Jeff and Sinthia owned. They were given one night in a hotel by Red Cross and that is all the help they have received. We are working to find them temporary housing and we want to raise funds and a work team to fix the roof and inside. Will you help us? As an African American and Latinx couple and elders living on a lower/fixed income, they are at greater risk in our community for losing the investment in this trailer they own and for not being able to find affordable housing. Let's be community for them and help fix their home!
