In 2015, Lafayette Urban Ministry served 5,363 households and more than 3,000 individuals volunteered in a LUM program. Over 1,600 individuals, churches, civic organizations, foundations or local businesses contributed financially to our work.
Please read the LUM Annual Report —learn the facts and figures—and see what your special friendship and generous support has accomplished and how many children and families were served. Then, take a moment to reflect upon what it was about LUM that evoked feeling in you this year.
As Maya Angelou wrote, “I have learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Thanks again for a terrific 2015 — you’ve made our community a stronger, safer, more fair and just place for everyone.
