Since 1969, Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry (LMM) has focused on serving people who are oppressed, forgotten and hurting including individuals who are homeless, unemployed and involved in the criminal justice system and individuals with behavioral health, guardianship and life-skill needs. LMM helps empower nearly 8,000 individuals every year to overcome barriers, obtain job skills, gain employment, locate stable housing, access counseling and support services, stay out of prison, secure second chances and become self-sufficient, productive members of our community.

In addition, LMM assisted 3,893 homeless adults and youth receive shelter, 2,238 adults obtain medical benefits, 1,035 people in obtaining housing, 821 people access medical care and 437 obtain job placements. LMM also provided 599 hours of behavioral health counseling.
