Soldiers of Love is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving lives and communities by promoting essential elements of Heaven on Earth: peace and security, freedom, democracies, prosperity, gender harmony, spiritual harmony, racial harmony, ecological harmony, health, as well as moral purpose and meaning, which combined, will help lead our society and humankind toward Heaven on Earth.
Based in New Orleans, Soldiers of Love partners with other charities with similar ideals and goals to support the community. While Soldiers of Love is locally based, our vision goes far beyond the four corners of Louisiana. We intend to identify the needs of communities throughout the United States and world to begin to strengthen each one by implementing the above elements.
Soldiers of Love is dedicated to delving into the core of world issues and making the earth a better place. By following our pledge, “I will try to love and help create a heaven on earth,” we can accomplish anything!
Soldiers of Love was founded in 2006 to promote and instill these key elements to help create Heaven on Earth – peace and security, freedom, democracies, prosperity, gender harmony, spiritual harmony, racial harmony, ecological harmony, health, as well as moral purpose and meaning. Through this charity, we will reach for the stars with the enduring, steadfast love of God from above. We strive to “teach people to fish instead of giving them a fish” : that is, make a long-lasting impact on their lives through education, training, healing, and other initiatives. This concept of autonomy and ownership is integral in reaching Heaven on Earth, and can be reflected in the ten elements.
Every day we are faced with the awful truths that occur in our world (war, genocide, disease, environmental deterioration, to name a few) that seem out of our reach to mend. While these issues are often on a large and worldly scale, we at Soldiers of Love know that if we focus on the ten elements, we can improve the foundation of our society. By focusing the charity’s efforts on the fabric of individual communities, such as education, economic well-being and health, we can ultimately make an impact on the rest of the world.
Soldiers of Love partners with other non-profit organizations to create a model that embodies the ten elements and can be replicated globally. Although we are based in New Orleans, our vision goes beyond the four corners of the state, our nation and eventually around the world.
Soldiers of Love recognizes the hard work and efforts already made by many charities throughout the world. As a not-for-profit, we are here to support those organizations. We strive to create partnerships with organizations on the same path as Soldiers of Love.

Desire Street Ministries
Since 1990, Desire Street Ministries has served the impoverished Desire neighborhood within New Orleans’ 9th ward with programs that meet the residentsâ€™ specific needs. While Hurricane Katrina forced Desire Street Ministries to relocate to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the organization still exists to revitalize the community through spiritual and community development.
Desire Street Ministries learned that to fully transform the neighborhood, it had to address the great educational gap that existed among the neighborhood’s youth. In 2002 Desire Street Ministries launched Desire Street Academy to transform the Desire community by training students to pursue excellence in academics, athletics and the arts in a Christian context. Desire Street Academy provides its students with a fresh start in a warm educational environment that emphasizes academic excellence, spiritual growth, consistent classroom management, individual responsibility, appropriate social behavior, and firm but balanced discipline.
