Paula Havard – Executive Director

Paula Havard joined Love INC Angelina County in May of 2022. She is a 2011 Leadership Lufkin graduate and served as Executive Director of the Pregnancy Help Center of Lufkin for twenty years before joining Loving Inc. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and has completed training through the American Association of Christian counselors focused on coaching and mentoring individuals through difficult life events. Paula’s heart is to connect with her community and neighbors to see transformation and growth through Jesus Christ.

She says, “I am eager to see how God further equips me to do His work here at Love INC. I am so grateful for the experiences that have led me to this place. I cannot wait to see what God works through our volunteers and church connections throughout Angelina County!”

Jim Myers – Volunteer Coordinator

Jim has served at Love INC for seven years now, first as a volunteer then later as an employee. Prior to coming to Love INC, he worked in the transportation industry as well as church administration. As a certified church administrator, he has been able to bless our local pastors and churches with his knowledge and heart for the Lord. We are very thankful to have Jim as a part of our team.

“I love assisting our neighbors with their financial and spiritual needs.” – Jim

Sherry Hobbs

Sherry Hobbs – Administrative Assistant

Sherry has held various clerical jobs during her career that contributed to the experience needed for her duties at Love INC.  In 2009, Sherry unleashed her entrepreneurial spirit and opened a cleaning business.  After a fall that resulted in back surgery and a lengthy recovery, Sherry then cared for her mother until her passing.  In 2021, Sherry heard of the opening at Love INC and felt God was ready for her to rejoin the workforce.  In May of 2021, Sherry joined Love INC as the Administrative Assistant.  She believes that God used the events in her life to humble her and help her gain more love and compassion for others – which is an important element of service at Love INC.

Sherry states, “One of the many lessons I have learned in my life is that our days are happier when we give people a bit of our heart rather than a piece of our mind.”

We are very thankful God has equipped Sherry with love and compassion for others, great organization skills, and a heart to learn and grow.  Moreover, we are so happy God led her to serve with Love INC.
