THe Organization

SoLoved is a project based, 501c3 organization in the Dayton community. We are committed to assisting different populations through community outreach by doing quarterly initiatives. Our focal scripture is John 3:16, For God so loved the world…Our motto is HE gave, so we give! The purpose of SoLoved is to meet the needs of individuals in the community while expressing to them that Jesus loves them. We seek to aide and empower them not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually through the word of God. SoLoved was founded as a way to let people know that God loves them and just how much He loves them, through scripture and outreach. Outreach will be done by quarterly initiatives in the community through witnessing and the donation of specific items; those items will be tagged with the SoLoved logo and focal scripture. This outreach effort is not in association with any particular church or affiliation.


SoLoved exists to transform our community by meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the people that we serve through outreach, support, empowerment and resources


To love and to give until there is no need, only overflow.
