Meet our Executive Director

Patricia Schapira

I began my journey with Love INC in September 2016 as a clearinghouse volunteer after more than 10 years of volunteering for organizations such as Make A Wish, Hospice of Michigan, Habitat for Humanity, PBJ Ministries and St. Joseph Outreach Ministries. After serving as a volunteer for four months, I accepted the role of Office Manager in December, 2016. Over the past year, I have learned that God has blessed us all with talents and that through Redemptive Compassion we are called to help people out of need.

In September 2017 I was honored to accept the position of Executive Director. I feel that God has brought me here to become closer to him and to build relationships in our community. I am looking forward to moving forward with God’s plan for our affiliate.
