Executive Director – Susan Payne
Susan has been Executive Director of Love INC of Otero County since May of 2009. Originally from California, Susan relocated to Alamogordo in 1994 with her family. Having primarily worked in the corporate sector before relocating to Otero County, she felt it was time to focus her attention on her family once they settled in New Mexico. Since moving to Alamogordo Susan has worked primarily for non profits such as the Pregnancy Help Center and United Way and still believes this is where she has been called to serve. Excited about the concept of the Love INC movement Susan accepted the position of Executive Director and in December of 2009 the clearing house was opened for service. Susan and her husband Ray have been married 27 years and they have four children, Jessica, Ray,Jr., Kayla and Kimberly and two grandchildren Sydney and Dane. Susan and her family attend Bethel Baptist Church where she is active in music and children’s ministries.

Marj has served as the ministry assistant for Love INC of Otero County for two years. Prior to that Marj and her husband Karl lived in Raton, NM where they owned and operated a motel for 18 years. Marj husband Karl is also one of our volunteers working primarily in building maintenance. Marj and Karl attend Westminster Presbyterian Church where they are active in various ministries.
Sonia volunteered for us several years as a volunteer before accepting the position of Clearinghouse Coordinator in March of 2016. Prior to Love INC Sonia was a full time mom and served in several capacities at her church. Sonia and her husband James have two children and are very active in their church, Calvary Chapel in Alamogordo.
Love INC is staffed primarily by volunteers. Currently we have about 35 volunteers that come every week to staff all of our GAP ministries. This group of dedicated Christian’s truly believe in the Love INC movement and feel this is where they have been called to serve. Without these faithful men and women Love INC would fail to operate with the efficiency that has we have become known for.
