From Inspiration to Vision

From Vision to Hope

From Hope to Reality

Welcome

Loaves and Fishes Ministries opened its doors and began to offer services in the spring of 1981 in response to the critical need for shelter in our greater Lansing community.

In establishing the program the original five co-founders took inspiration from the social justice teachings of Jesus as exemplified by Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

(Adapted from Mother Teresa of Calcutta’s Co-Worker Statement of Purpose)

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,     I was a stranger and you invited me in.

(Matthew 25: 35)
