The Executive Directors of Lafayette Urban Ministry
Here is your advance copy of the LUM 2019 Annual Report. The pages detail the remarkable work that together we have accomplished on behalf of low-income children and working families in our community.
How gratifying it is for the LUM staff members, as well as for LUM’s many volunteers, to see the generous financial support of LUM’s many donors and to experience the ever-present encouragement of the LUM Board of Directors.
Feel free to share the LUM Annual Report with friends and family members to show the impact that you are having through your partnership in LUM.
Please be in touch if you have questions or comments. THANK YOU for all you continue to do for local children and families through the service & programs at Lafayette Urban Ministry.

LUM Mission Statement
Poverty is the greatest thief.
More than depriving a neighbor of food or shelter or warmth, it steals away hope.
While other thieves may take away the past, poverty steals the future and self-respect.
Lafayette Urban Ministry is in the business of restoring human dignity.
Through voluntary efforts and contributions we give back the hope, the future, and the self respect which all God’s people need and deserve.
Ours is a Christian ministry that welcomes congregations and people of all faiths.
We give witness to God’s saving love & prophetic power by loving neighbors, seeking justice, empowering the least among us, and renewing the Church’s social ministry.
