One Way Love

Protecting the most vulnerable. Serving the most broken.

We started One Way Love to live a life of compassion, to see the connection between ourselves and those who are hurting and suffering. It’s not a burden; it’s a fire within us to make a difference.

The fruit of love is service, which is compassion in action.
-Mother Theresa

One Way Love's Leadership Team

Travis Manint

President // Executive Director

Quick backstory: I was in ministry for ten years trying to pray the gay away. It did not end well.

My experience rebuilding my life from an ash heap has taught me a new orthodoxy. You see, that ash heap was not financial ruin, losing a home, or a loved one. For me, it was stripping away all of the falseness. All of the dysfunctional and damning “truths” that I had built my life around and then, in grace, found could not be true. Fast forward, and today, I'm privileged to give functional leadership to this fantastic organization that loves without judgement and gives without expectation.

Rosemary Manint

Vice President // Program Director

Brokenness was the door to transformation in my life. It gave me a new set of eyes. A deep knowing that God’s compassion and love is something He wants the whole world to know. This gift is the humility to know that we are all God’s children, and there are no exclusions. To love others as He did is my passion.

Sandra Douglas

Vice President // Development Director

I have been on the broken side of things, and God in His universal love for me has brought great healing to my soul. So with that great love, I now want to share it and help heal the world.

Our Core Beliefs

One Way Love provides community and family support, counseling, housing assistance, and other forms of services firmly rooted in the sincere belief that there is no person created whom is unloved, unaccepted, or unwelcome by God. As such, the organization does not exclude any person or persons on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, parental status, or military service.

"What the gospel indeed gives us is a cosmic and positive vision inside of which the soul can live safely. That’s the only place from which lasting change ever comes. Jesus’ word for that positive vision- not against anybody or expelling anything- is the Reign of God. He includes (“forgives”) sinners instead of excluding or scapegoating them.  The suffering of Jesus tells us that God is not aloof or merely tolerating human pain, but participating with us in it. It’s the only thing that gives us both hope and meaning."
