Our Story


Hover over images to view our values.

LIVE LOVE's journey began with a life-changing friendship between Paul and a homeless man named Carlos in Guatemala. This profound connection opened Paul's eyes to the transformative power of love and its ability to touch the lives of others. Inspired by this experience, Paul and Melinda established Live Love in 2007, driven by a desire to inspire others to embrace love as a guiding principle in their lives. At LIVE LOVE, we believe that every action, every word, and every choice holds significance, shaping the world around us. Love, we recognize, is not just a concept; it's a way of life, a force that has the power to change individuals, communities, and the world at large. LIVE LOVE is more than just a slogan or a program; it's a deeply held philosophy that guides our approach to community development. We empower neighborhood leaders, mobilize community assets, and foster connections, all rooted in the unwavering belief that love is the cornerstone of positive change. Through our actions, we strive to demonstrate the transformative power of love, inviting others to join us in living a life imbued with love and compassion.
