Lindenwood Area Senior Ministry (LASM) is a partnership of five faith communities providing a variety of support services for older adult members of the partner churches as well as any senior living in the Lindenwood Park neighborhood.
In 2006, five churches in the Lindenwood Park neighborhood recognized the growing needs of the senior adults in their community. They approached South Grand Senior Ministry (SGSM) with the hope of replicating SGSM’s model program in the Lindenwood community.
After a year of consultation and the building out of core programs, Lindenwood Area Senior Ministry (LASM) became an independent entity in January 2008. LASM acheived its nonprofit status in 2009 and is proud to be a vital and growing ministry.
