Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

GIVE (grow. inspire. volunteer. educate.)

GIVE stands for grow, inspire, volunteer, and educate, which are the main focal points of this pilot program to implement a community service-based curriculum for local educators and students living in Long Beach. In addition, our curriculum will address critical issues like hunger and poverty in Long Beach and teach the students how to provide resources to fight these issues. The goal of GIVE is to introduce students to LITM and inspire them to believe in themselves and know they can give back to their community, regardless of how old they are. The students will learn the importance of giving their time volunteering and help them grow into effective community leaders. Finally, we will strive to teach them that race, gender, and income do not determine how to create lasting positive change in their community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

One of the goals Love in the Mirror has is to assist 10,000+ unhoused and low-income individuals with basic needs items: food, clothing, personal hygiene items, learning materials.

We will partner with schools and other community organizations to collect items and share items to the unhoused and low-income population.

We have the capabilities to inspire students from all over the nation and work with them on giving-based projects throughout the year. We can collect over 10,000 basic needs items to share with unhoused and low-income individuals.

We are on our way to reaching our goal of an additional 10,000 people being served this year.
