Heart for Monroe is a nonprofit organization that exists to unite and mobilize churches, community organizations and individuals to address homelessness, hunger, education and relationships in our community.

This mission started with the youth group at Shiloh Baptist Church on October 15, 2014 after a trip to the Dominican Republic earlier that year. The youth group read Bob Goff’s book, “Love Does” and the simple motto of “love God, love people and do stuff” became the vision. It was clear that we needed to do something in our own community.

Heart for Monroe has since grown into a network of more than 40 churches and 20 nonprofits all working together with one heart and one mission.

This mission effort is open to all churches, community service groups and anyone who wants to make a difference in our community. Through a series of events, fundraisers, and volunteer opportunities – we will change people’s lives and touch hearts. We challenge you to get involved.
