LMM Names Next President & CEO
Maria Foschia, LMM President & CEO
“It is with humility and with great respect for the legacy of our founder, Rev. Richard E. Sering, that I accept this leadership position during this most challenging time in our community,” Foschia expresses. “I share in the optimism of many public and private sector leaders for a better future for Greater Cleveland. I envision LMM continuing to play a vital role in addressing the root causes of poverty in service to promoting justice, and providing stability and hope to all we walk with in their time of need.”
Seek Justice, Show Mercy, Serve with Humility 
LMM's mission is founded in our commitment to Micah 6:8. Each day, we seek justice and serve our neighbors in need with humility. 
For people in our community experiencing homelessness and food insecurity, who are unemployed or underemployed, or who are facing an adverse situation that affects their health and safety, LMM is a willing partner in God's work of mercy. 
We invite you to join us by making an investment in people who are oppressed to be seen, valued and healed.
