Love Unconditional is an all-volunteer, ministry partnership that cares for the poorest and most vulnerable in the Dominican Republic: orphans, widows, and the elderly.

Through our programs, we provide meals, education, and food assistance to those who need it most. Love Unconditional partners with Iglesia La Viña in Montellano, Dominican Republic to deliver support locally to hundreds of people throughout the year.

Child Sponsorship

The Sponsor a Child program matches you with a child orphaned by death or abandonment. Your sponsorship helps a  child with school, advocacy, and more.

Love Unconditional program

The Widow & Elder Care program provides emergency meals/groceries,  basic utilities, and home visits to widows, the elderly, and families in need.

How your donation helps

Five dollars

Here in the US, $5 buys you one large latté. In the Dominican Republic, $5 buys a hungry child 5 healthy lunches—one each weekday to sustain him or her throughout the day.

Donations are used to invest in education, to combat hunger, and to provide basic necessities. 100% of your donations go directly to help the children and elderly we serve.

Celebrating 10 Years of Ministry 2007-2017


In July of 2007, 25 hungry children were served lunch out of a single kitchen in Montellano, Dominican Republic.   Today, our Lunch Plate Program serves almost 500 hot nutritious meals each weekday at the LaViña community center as well as at sites in two other villages.   In August of 2007, 10 orphans were enrolled in school.  Since then, over 135 students have been matched with sponsors through our Whole Child Sponsorship and High School Leadership Programs, and helped not only with basic needs, but also empowered with education.   The needs are continual and great.  There are always children on our waiting list.  Together we can make a difference for vulnerable children and elderly.  We look ahead to the next 10 years and invite you to partner with us!
