New Endowment for LUM Immigration Clinic
Endowment Established for LUM Immigration Clinic
Cris King, LUM board member from Central Presbyterian Church and volunteer with the LUM Good Samaritan Program, recently established an endowment for the benefit of the LUM Immigration Clinic through The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette.
The income from this endowment will provide perpetual support to the LUM Immigration Clinic. Cris believes that the services LUM provides through the Immigration Clinic are needed now more than ever. “Those who are immigrants to our community are too often confused about the complex and ever-changing federal laws and rules that stand between them and US citizenship. They need help to navigate the legal process. In our current political climate, anxiety, fear of family separation, imprisonment and deportation are part of the equation, too. I feel compassion for these children and families. Holy Scripture reminds us that the alien who resides with us should be treated as the citizen, and that we should love the alien as ourselves. LUM’s Immigration Clinic staff and volunteers are doing the work of faith.”
LUM is so very grateful to Cris King for establishing her endowment and for her special friendship and generous support of all the many immigrant children and families served here.
