What is The Army of One?
Working with those who see needs daily.
The Army of One is a program of LIVE-IT Ministries that works with local government and other agencies who regularly come in contact with the elderly and others in need. These agencies make referrals to LIVE-IT who visits them and determines the resources needed to meet the need. The needs are then mapped based on location and need type.
Working with those who can meet needs regularly.
"For we have found that most often the greatest need is a loving community."
Although we work with a variety of organizations to meet needs we believe the local church is specifically called to "love their neighbor." Therefore the location of churches within the county are mapped. When a new need is placed on the map we can then identify a church in close proximity to that need.
How It Works
LIVE-IT asks churches to commit to an outreach zone to help neighbors in need around their church. LIVE-IT helps train volunteers from the churches to meet needs that are being identified by Home Health Agencies, the local Senior Center, Office on Aging, etc. Each church through their volunteers meet the needs within their specified outreach zone. With outreach zones overlapping all the needs in a particular area can be met.
