Who we are


Help when you need it

A Touch of Love Works is a non-profit organization committed to serving the homeless population and others in urgent need in a manner that meets their needs and preserves their dignity. A Touch of Love Works offers help to those needing assistanceto get back to their families, or to an agency, mission, or ministry that can give them a chance for a better way of life.

How? Sometimes, it's a matter of an email, a referral or a prayer for reconciliation. Sometimes it's a shelter or someone to offer a helping hand. Maybe a phone call to a distant relative can find them being reunited with their loved ones.


Our Touch Extends

Our Touch of Love extends from the oldest to the youngest. We are focused on meeting urgent needs of people we see with our own eyes.There is plenty of evidence. What we see can't be denied and we will not be blind to their plight nor deaf to their cries. We have faith that is evidenced by works.

"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers/sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother/sister in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?   (1 John 3:16-17)


A Touch of Love Works

A Touch of Love Works is a bunch of people who see a great need and we can't act as if we don't see these individuals.  If we can, we will help connect them with resources to help them get short-term and long-term assistance to change their quality of life. The goal is to eradicate homelessness in America.

Come serve with us

We will be collecting sleeping bags, preparing meals and shoeboxs for the homeless veterans, our brothers and sisters in nursing homes and those displaced on the streets. Serve with us and see how your donations are meeting real needs. A Touch of Love Works has been serving with members of 2nd Baptist Church, Saddleback Church, LDS Church, and partnerships with local and state social services and neighbors from surrounding communities since our inception over 5 years ago. We serve Orange County, Santa Ana, Lake Forest, Corona, and surrounding communities. Collectively, we are a community of friends and neighbors who see people hurting in real time and are moved to react with real love. While we understand that we can't alleviate all the problems, we are determined to show, at the least, that a touch of love works.

Reaching out to help people that our eyes see

We walk by faith and also by sight. We can not deny what our eyes see, so we add works to our faith. Jesus said, "...Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink; I was homeless and you took Me in..." You will say. 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and fed You or thirsty and gave You something to drink, a stranger and took You in, naked and clothed You, You were sick or in prison and we came to see You?" Jesus said, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did for Me." (Matthew 25:35-40 NIV)


Everyone can give a Touch of Love
