LMM 2017 Annual Report




On behalf of Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry, we are honored to present the

2017 Annual Report. As LMM nears its 50th year in 2019, we’re focused on

providing innovative solutions in Housing & Shelter, Workforce Development,

and Health & Wellness Services. Our unwavering commitment to addressing

chronic needs, enabling people to self-sufficiency, and advocating for system

change drives our efforts to empower those we serve each year. A few of our

2017 highlights:

• Our Men’s Shelter at 2100 Lakeside completed a multi-million

dollar renovation funded by Cuyahoga County and the Ohio

Development Services Agency

• The agency increased its community presence and branding

awareness with positive stories in the media, including print and

digital outlets

• Academy Award-nominated filmmakers announced their making

of a documentary about the women of LMM’s Chopping for

Change program

• We successfully concluded two mergers and strategically realigned

programs in order to strengthen and modernize services

• We progressed in our commitment to sustainable practices

with the development of a “Green Team,” which researches and

conducts initiatives to lead LMM in environmentally conscious

best practices and education as recycling guidelines evolve

We trust that you see our commitment to empowering the oppressed, forgotten

and hurting reflected throughout this report. We extend our sincere gratitude

to all our donors and funders for your role in this success and we look forward

to another year of convening, advocating and serving with your support.

With appreciation,

Marcella J. Brown, MNO

Chair, Board of Directors

Housing & Shelter • Workforce Development • Health & Wellness Services



LMM is working toward a better political culture, more thoughtful media and a

renewed civic dialogue.

We have a mission-level commitment to advocacy and we work for common sense public

policy solutions informed by innovative programs working on behalf of low-income and

marginalized people.




In 2017, through civic engagement, public awareness campaigns, advocacy forums

and meetings with Ohio public officials, LMM addressed:

• Access to Health Care

• Affordable Housing

• Criminal Justice Reform

• Foster Care

• Hunger and Food Insecurity

• Public Health and Clean


• Workforce Development

LMM leadership, staff partners and clients met with Ohio public officials in

Cleveland, at the Ohio Statehouse and in Washington D.C. In August, we were

delighted to host Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine for a tour and discussion

about ending recidivism.

Our Principles:

• We believe that smart and effective government is an essential way society makes

equitable decisions to improve lives, families and communities.

• We believe that good public policy results from people with differing views rationally

finding common ground, transcending exaggerated differences and aligning for the

common good.

Impact Statement:

LMM seeks that people who are oppressed, forgotten, and hurting be empowered, valued,

and healed by our unwavering commitment to addressing chronic needs, enabling people to

self-sufficiency, and advocating for system change. We seek to change the social, political,

and religious conversation about justice from one of limitations to one of possibilities.
