Join us in welcoming our new Clearinghouse Coordinator, Karen Henry!

Below is a brief introduction by Karen:

I am so excited to be in this new role at Love INC. One of my biggest passions is outreach and I am a firm believer in the mission of Love INC.

Part of my history with this organization is that I was the Non-Food Pantry Coordinator for several years when it was housed at Northside Community Church. Then for the past six years I was Office Manager at Northside, and as part of my job there I referred people in need to Love INC on a regular basis.

These partnerships were a great springboard in helping me to understand and embrace what goes on in this very important ministry.

On June 9 of this year I became an ordained Elder (Pastor) in the Free Methodist Church. My assignment through the Free Methodist denomination is as a volunteer pastor, and I serve alongside my husband, who was also ordained in June. We are the Recovery Pastors and Ministry Leaders for the Celebrate Recovery program.

My family consists of my husband David (married for 31 years), our daughter Alyssa (28) who lives in Salem and is a nurse, our son Ryan (27) who lives with us and is a Security Officer, and our son Isaac (24) who lives with us along with his wife Krystael and our three grandkids, Riker (4), Leo (2) and Izzibelle (4 months). My grandkids are the light of my life and I feel privileged to have them in my home where I get to see them every day.
