On the October 6, 2013, edition of Cleveland Connection we learn about the Next Step Run for Shelter fundraiser.

Host Katherine Boyd talks with Kandi Withers, Director of Next Step; and Jerry Brown, a  Board Member with LMM’s youth services branch.

Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry (LMM) helps people find jobs, stable housing, and counseling and support. It’s goal is to help people get a second chance and become self-sufficient, productive members of society.

Next Step, a program of LMM, provides older youth who are without a home or a stable living environment with shelter care and independent living.  In addition to meeting the basic needs of housing, food and clothing, these gender-specific services also include counseling, independent-living skills and job placement.
