**Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry (LMM)

         Our mission is to promote shalom (peace, well-being) and justice (right relationships) through a Christian ministry of service and advocacy with those who are oppressed, forgotten and hurting.

        LMM was established in response to the urban unrest of the 1960's, specifically the upheaval in Hough. Today, LMM serves and advocates with people currently and previously involved in the criminal justice system, youth at-risk, people with disabilities, people dealing with long term care needs and people who are homeless.

LWR Lutheran World Relief    

        Mission: Affirming God’s love for all people, we work with Lutherans and partners around the world to end poverty, injustice and human suffering. 

        World War II left an estimated one-fifth of the world’s Lutherans homeless. Initially prompted by sending aid to their German and Scandinavian kin, American Lutherans soon realized that aid could be shared fairly only on the basis of need. In the late 1940s, the focus was Palestinians forced from their homes by the creation of the state of Israel, the 1950s focused on Asia, and the 1970s & ’80s Africa.

**Chaplain Partnership (formerly Lutheran Chaplaincy)

           Chaplain Partnership employs professionally trained chaplains who serve in institutions that contract with us for spiritual care services. Our partner institutions are located throughout the northern half of Ohio and include hospitals, long-term care facilities, and a facility for the developmentally disabled.  We also offer our expertise as a search service for healthcare institutions seeking a chaplain.

**Lutheran World Relief (LWR)

           Lutheran World Relief is a ministry of U.S. Lutherans, serving communities living in poverty overseas.
