House of Love Ministry
The foundation of House of Love Ministry (HOLM) was laid when the founder witnessed men making bad lifestyle choices. Providing these men with the structure to experience the love and acceptance that they desired and lacked in other settings is how HOLM became the solution to the problem.
Incorporated in the State of Georgia in 2006, HOLM became a 501(c)(3) non- profit organization in 2008. In 2009, the first of many grants was awarded to HOLM by the Compassion Capital Fund to build, strengthen and grow the ministry. In 2010, the Founder experienced a life-threatening accident that halted the progress of HOLM. In 2012, during times of prayer and fasting, the Founder felt God’s leading to relocate his family and the ministry to the State of Illinois. In 2013 HOLM initiated operations in Illinois and in 2015 received another grant for marketing.
