LMM Education Coordinator
Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry (LMM) launched two social enterprises in 2012. The first enterprise is the Central Kitchen which prepares and serves over 1,400 meals a day to various homeless shelters throughout Cleveland. The second enterprise is a metal fabrication business, Metro Metal Works, that manufactures bike racks and other metal forms. Both endeavors provide marketable goods or services to the community as well as opportunities for skill training and employment experience of individuals in populations served by LMM. In addition to aiding in the startup of these existing enterprises, LMM will be partnering with 2 other organizations throughout Northern and Central Ohio. This project will investigate the feasibility of several other enterprises and develop/implement business plans as applicable throughout 2013 and 2014. VISTA members will conduct feasibility and market studies, create and implement business and marketing plans, track enterprise outcomes, and develop training curriculum. As an organization, LMM has five areas of service including programs working with people who are involved with the criminal justice system, youth who are at-risk, people with disabilities, individuals and families dealing with long term care needs and men who are homeless. To build economic opportunity and empowerment among those we serve LMM has made a commitment to developing social enterprises that provide skill training and employment experience to those we serve.
