Started in 2005 by chiropractors Dr. Kevin Pallis and Dr. Ed Plentz, Love Has No Color brings love, joy, and hope to the kids living in poverty and instability at the Fort Peck reservation in Poplar, MT.

As Americans, we don't have to look very far to find third world conditions; poverty is alive and well in the United States, and nowhere is it more obvious than on Native American Reservations.

Here are just a few statistics of life on the Res that very few people are even aware of:
-Highest suicide rate in US (10x national average)
-Life expectancy, disease, poverty of a third world country
-Disease rates unrivaled in the US (diabetes is 4x national average)
-40% high school dropout rate-Crime, drugs and alcohol abuse that starts in middle school
-75% unemployment

LHNC runs several yearly programs at Fort Peck, namely Boot Camp - which involves community service, putting on a carnival for the kids, and distributing food to the many impoverished families - and Christmas on the Reservation - which involves handing out thousands of gifts to young children who would otherwise get none. Ultimately, our goal is to end the hopelessness of the people on Reservations through health. Using chiropractic and holistic care, the supporters of LHNC want to change the paradigm to transform hopelessness to hopefulness.At its core is a common thread that unites all of us – do the right thing, especially for people who are oppressed.

LHNC is a fully federal tax recognized 501(c)(3) movement that has no paid staff, no consultants, only volunteers.
