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.
