Celebrating a Milestone Year

The year 2019 will have special meaning for Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry. The agency, which began in 1969 in the Hough neighborhood of Cleveland, will enter its 50th year. Over the last five decades, LMM has evolved along with changing needs of the community by developing effective and timely advocacy initiatives and social services programming.

The 50th Anniversary will be a year full of events, large and small, that will set the stage for showcasing the innovation of our current service areas: Housing & Shelter, Workforce Development, and Health & Wellness Services. The LMM team is looking forward to sharing with you the projects we’re currently and newly embarking on, which will set up future generations of staff and participants for success. The half century mark will also be an opportunity to look back at the people, programs and impact of the agency over the years.

Watch for a special edition of the Seeds of Change newsletter for a major announcement early this year. We’ll also have 50th Anniversary coverage in the quarterly issues of Seeds next year, as well as in E-News, which you can sign up for on our home page. Please take a moment to follow us on social media @LMMCleveland to stay up-to-date on the many happenings over the next 12 months, including agency events.

In the Fall, we’ll have our 50th Anniversary Celebration, which will be a unique and exciting event to remember. We look forward to sharing our 50th year with you, our biggest supporters and change-makers! Together, we will enter the next chapter of innovation at LMM.
