For parents, taking care of their children is their top priority. Finding the money to do that isn't a problem for most parents.

But some parents can't even afford the necessities. That's where Love Life comes in.

Love Life is a ministry that provides spiritual and material support to low-income mothers and women facing unplanned pregnancies.

Love Life started in 1993 at St. Joseph Parish on the west side of Green Bay. As the program grew, it was decided to add an east side location. Since the east side location opened Oct. 8, 2004, at Peace United Methodist Church, Love Life has been able to help even more families.   Full story ...
