Jon and Cathy Pomeroy Co-Directors Helping Hands Healing Hearts Community Assistance

Our Story from founding directors
Jon and Cathy Pomeroy

The former Love INC (In the Name of Christ) officially closed its doors in January of 2017. Having been housed in the back of the Sandpoint Church of God for the prior three years, the remaining assets of the ministry were “bequeathed” to SCOG. Hearing strong expressions from the community for the need of a similar ministry to fill the void, the SCOG Church Council decided to “resurrect” Love INC under a new name and renewed focus. After a “listening tour” of three months with numerous pastors and agency leaders throughout the community, “Helping Hands – Healing Hearts” was chosen as the name that would reflect the purpose and mission of the new ministry. Believing that every need is essentially a heart issue, the primary focus of “QH” would be healing hearts through helping hands. This reflects Jesus’ teaching to “use worldly wealth to make friends for eternity” (paraphrase of Luke 16:9). And so, after several months of reorganizing and preparation – in partnership with many other churches and agencies – “Helping Hands – Healing Hearts” officially opened on May 9, 2017. We celebrate this joint ministry that is helping people in need, and in the process, making friends for eternity! Thank you for joining us in celebrating God’s work through us all together!

Our Mission

Helping Hands Healing Hearts is a Christ-centered joint ministry of Sandpoint area churches and aims to be God’s vessel to lend a helping hand by providing assistance for material needs and in healing hearts by providing spiritual and emotional support to the needy in our community.
