Promoting LUM Opportunities & Services
Outreach is an important part of the mission of Lafayette Urban Ministry. Members of the LUM professional staff actively seek opportunities to promote LUM services, recruit volunteers, and educate people on issues relating to poverty, hunger and homelessness. Directors of the various LUM programs are eager to raise awareness of LUM services, are well-informed on social and economic issues, and would like to help raise awareness in the local community on critical issues affecting low-income families.
Recently, LUM has been attending various community events, church services and group meetings. Among these are as follows:
- Tippecanoe Latino Festival – Columbian Park
- Community Service Fair – Purdue College of Education
- First Friday – Downtown Lafayette
- Greater Lafayette Indiana Black Expo “Car-nival”
- We’re Out Celebration – First United Methodist Church
- Hunger Hike Kickoff Event – Riehle Plaza
- Civic Groups/Agencies – Recovery Cafe, Noon Optimists, University Place
- Churches – Living Truth of Christ Church and Memorial Presbyterian Church of Dayton
Staff members are available to speak or set up an information table for churches, civic organization, agencies, community events, and educational groups. To make arrangements for a presentation or event, call or email LUM (765-423-2691 | lum@LUMserve.org).
