The vision for the River City Love Squad came in 1999 when founder Col. Mike Miller felt a burden after reading a newspaper article about how homeless people living in the Bourbon Stock Yards would be displaced by the building's pending demolition. He began with a few hundred dollars and a hard-core following. Initially the group visited the stockyards each Monday bringing food and the Word of God to the homeless people. From the stockyards, the group began visiting other inner-city hot spots ministering to the homeless and needy.
