LUM Shelter Benefits from NCHS Grant
North Central Health Services Awards $963 to LUM
North Central Health Services recently awarded the LUM Emergency Shelter a grant in the amount of $963 to purchase equipment to launch a video program to address addiction.
Addiction and homelessness are directly correlated. At the LUM Emergency Shelter there has been a focus on addiction including a nightly support group for the guests. With this grant money, LUM was able to launch a new, creative video series program to enhance the focus on addiction. During check-in each afternoon, at dinner and at breakfast, a series of videos are played for the guests which focus on addiction in a wide array of different, inspiring, creative and often entertaining ways. So far the video program has been well received by the LUM shelter guests. LUM is committed to addressing addiction with our clients and shelter guests and is confident this new program will have a positive impact.
Special thank you to NCHS for their support of Lafayette Urban Ministry and the Emergency Shelter. LUM would not have been able to offer this program without the support of NCHS and this grant.
