Welcome to the Lafayette Urban Ministry

The Lafayette Urban Ministry (LUM) is an organization of 42 Christian churches that serves as a social safety net for Lafayette's needy children and families.

For over 40 years, LUM has worked to give back the hope, the future, and the self-respect to low-income people in the Greater Lafayette area. We take an active role in trying to change social injustices and improve the quality of life for the poor of Indiana.

We invite you to learn about LUM and keep up to date with the latest LUM news and developments.
