The purpose of a Gap Ministry is to provide a resource or service to meet ongoing needs that are not currently being met by other agencies, organizations or other entities.
These Gap Ministries are available to Love INC TT&S clients.
Anyone can call during our help center hours to become a client or existing clients can call to request an appointment to get assistance with a product or service.
In our community, Love INC TT&S helps coordinate these ministries by procuring items from the entire network to supply these outreaches with the resources they need.
We then refer verified needs through its help center to the ministry.
We also help promote the Gap Ministry to the community and facilitate sharing of best practices to grow the ministry.
