Outreach is an important part of the mission of LUM; and members of the LUM professional staff actively seek opportunities to educate people on issues relating to poverty, hunger and homelessness. Directors of the various LUM programs 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.
Staff members are available to speak to church, civic, and educational groups on a variety of topics. To make arrangements for a presentation, call or email LUM (765.423.2691 | firstname.lastname@example.org) or email the staff person directly.
