The Lutheran Foundation Welcomes 33 New Mental Health Advocates!

The Lutheran Foundation welcomed its fourth cohort of congregational Mental Health Advocates during an in-person kick-off event held at St. Michael Lutheran Church, Fort Wayne on April 11. The Lutheran Foundation now has a total of 91 Mental Health Advocates serving in northeast Indiana!
