What People Are Asking
Frequently Asked Questions
How can people I know get the help they need?
If you, or someone you know in Arapahoe or Douglas County has a physical, financial or spiritual need that is immediate and dire, please submit an email via our contact page on this website, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will review the need to see if it fits within our vision and mission and locality requirements. If we are able to assist, we will call or email you, or the person in need and speak with you about how we may be able to assist. If we cannot assist directly, for whatever reason, we know many other people, organizations and agencies who may be able to help.
How can I be sure my donation will go to help the hurting and needy?
Our financial records are open to all Ministry Partners for their review. We can assure you that 100% of your financial support will be used to meet the needs of real people in our community. We are a Board-led ministry and we strive for unanimous Board approval on the spending of donated funds, whenever possible. We are entirely volunteer run, no one draws a salary or benefits from donations if they serve this ministry. Only our “Clients” benefit and only if they meet the requirements of Love Bears All to receive help.
How do you determine if someone can receive assistance?
If a Client lives in either Arapahoe or Douglas County and they can show us by their bank account statement, bills and/or other forms of physical proof that they are in need (EBT qualification, disability qualification, housing assistance), these are normally sufficient to help us determine their qualification, depending upon the need. We also consider statements from landlords, employers, neighbors and clergy in the determination of need. Each person is evaluated on a case by case basis and each case is managed by the team.
What types of donations do you accept?
We accept cash, checks, credit cards and electronic transfers (eg: PayPal, Zelle, bank to bank, etc.). We also accept the transfer of real property, like cars, trucks, vans, motor homes, boats, trailers, mobile homes, houses and land, whether willed or bequeathed, or gifted. Real property gifts are either gifted for ministry purposes or liquidated to provide funds for ministry. We do not accept furniture or clothing donations at this time as we do not have the warehousing space to collect them.
