Happy 50th Anniversary, LUM!


1972-2022 | Incorporated in October of 1972

Last night at an informal party with cake & ice cream, LUM friends, board members & staff celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the incorporation of Lafayette Urban Ministry in October of 1972.

Everyone in attendance was full of joy and gratitude. Gratitude for the impact that LUM has had with families, individuals and children, and joy for the bright future ahead (and joy for the cake & ice cream, too).
