LUM is fortunate to have Dora & Breanne on the ASP team and for the partnership with the Ivy Tech Human Services program.

Local IBE Chapter Donates School Supplies


LUM Students Receive Free School Supplies

Two LUM students with Jos Holman & Wes Tillett, LUM executive director

Jos Holman, representative from the Greater Lafayette Chapter of the Indiana Black Expo, delivered free backpacks and school supplies to all of the students enrolled in the LUM After School Program.

Each year the members of the Greater Lafayette Chapter of the Indiana Black Expo make sure that each child in our community goes back to school with the supplies they need to succeed. They distributed school supplies at their 14th annual Back to School Curbside CARnival earlier this month at Ivy Tech Community College, Lafayette campus.

LUM is grateful to Jos Holman and all of the members of Greater Lafayette Chapter of the Indiana Black Expo for their support of the LUM students.

LUM After School Program Opens

Back to School – LUM ASP in Full Swing

School has started in Lafayette, West Lafayette & Tippecanoe County — which means the LUM After School Program has started as well.

The LUM After School Program provides safe, fun and enriching childcare for children in Kindergarten to 8th grade. The program serves up to 60 children from elementary & middle schools in Tippecanoe County for three hours each school-day afternoon, enabling their parents to finish their workday. The children are transported from their schools to the LUM After School Program at the LUM Ray Ewry Youth Center — where they work on homework, have a nutritious snack, and participate in crafts, music, and other fun recreational and educational activities.

The program is staffed by a professionally trained educator, teacher’s aides, interns and volunteers, including bus drivers. If you are interested in VOLUNTEERING or need more information, click HERE — or call or email Kristi Hogue (765.423.2691 | khogue@lumserve.org).

LUM Youth Center – No Touch Clean Up


Hands-Free Faucets & Hand Dryers

This summer, the students enrolled in the LUM 5th Quarter Summer Learning Program were able to wash & dry their hands without needing to touch the faucet or towel dispenser. The restrooms in the LUM Ray Ewry Youth Center are now equipped with hands-free hand dryers and hands-free faucets. LUM students were always required to wash their hands but during COVID-19 washing is more frequent and carefully monitored. Now it is also safer.

Thanks to a grant from the McAllister Foundation, LUM was able to purchase hands-free faucets for the restrooms. The grant has also been used to make playground improvements and to purchase books & a bookshelf, bus back-up cameras, and increased outdoor lighting.

This gift has had a tremendous positive impact on the LUM youth programs, directly enhancing the LUM students’ experiences. Thanks again to Dave Webb with the Alfred J. & Dorothy N. McAllister Foundation for their continued support of the students enrolled in the LUM youth programs.
