LUM Welcomes Winter – An Important Season
| Christmas Assistance | Shelter | Food & Meals |
November has arrived, the brightly colored leaves are falling from the trees, and the weather is getting cooler. It is an important time for Lafayette Urban Ministry. A time when LUM programs give help and hope to our neighbors who have no food, no homes and no income.
The winter season is when LUM programs are perfectly aligned with “tackling basic human needs and uplifting people.”
Winter Warming Station
The LUM Winter Warming Station complements the Emergency Shelter and is open midnight to 7 a.m. from November 15 to April 15, the season when outside weather conditions get very dangerous. The Winter Warming Station welcomes anyone in our community who needs a warm, safe place to rest.

LUM Jubilee Christmas is a special program for families with children (ages 12 & younger), serving more than 630 local families in support of more than 1,850 local children on Saturday, December 10. In addition to the toys and clothes, each Jubilee Christmas family receives a food gift card and homemade cookies to make Christmas dinner special too. Most importantly, this program makes the parents the heroes on Christmas morning in the eyes of their children. It also relieves the financial burden of the holiday allowing families to stay on budget and pay their recurring bills and expenses.
