Love Takes Root

Cultivating the future of children worldwide.

LOVE Takes Root is a nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating the future of children worldwide. We help children around the world facing dire circumstances by delivering basic aid, education, and the seeds for a sustainable future. In 2011, we were called to Haiti where we relocated and rebuilt an orphanage reduced to rubble by the 2010 earthquake. For sustainability, we also built a primary school, secondary school and medical/dental clinic.  LOVE Takes Root is an Iowa-based, volunteer-led, grassroots organization that embraces the values of hard work, neighborliness, and compassion. We encourage you to join us in our mission by becoming a ROOTS Runner and joining a dedicated group of givers who pound the pavement, raising funds for our mission while training for and racing a half-marathon or marathon. To learn more about us, please visit www.lovetakesroot.org.
