Who We Are
Fern Creek/Highview United Ministries (FCHUM) is a not-for-profit social service agency founded in 1988 by 10 local churches in the Louisville, Kentucky area. A group of representatives from 10 different churches met and made a commitment to move beyond their denominational ties to work together to meet the needs of our community. Today, FCHUM is supported by area churches representing a large cross-section of different denominations working together who help make many significant contributions within the community on a daily basis.
FCHUM is a member of the Association of Community Ministries. The individual community ministries, who are members of the Association of Community Ministries, have made a positive difference to thousands of people's lives. As a result, the various communities around Metro Louisville provide a wonderful support system to the community.
FCHUM has around 100 volunteers who work in our programs. Our volunteers serve at all levels - from janitorial tasks to fund raising. FCHUM has been fortunate enough to receive help from various businesses and individuals in the community who want to make a difference in the lives of others. It takes the commitment of the churches, businesses, and other community organizations to help ensure that all residents of Fern Creek and Highview are able to enjoy a good quality of life. Please consider how you can be a part of contributing to our community through the FCHUM by volunteering!
Our mission is simply stated in the following italicized text: The purpose of the organization is to unite the community in providing programs and vital social services primarily for residents of the Fern Creek and Highview areas of Louisville-Jefferson County Metro, and to improve the quality of life in the community. Fern Creek/Highview United Ministries provides programs and activities that respond to the human needs of all residents in the community without regard to race, creed, color, age or gender.
From Rev. Ron Loughry, Executive Director of FCHUM
FCHUM Ministries News - Volume 17, Issue 2, Summer / Autumn 2015 - In May, I celebrated my 19th anniversary of ministry here with FCHUM. Starting in 1996 as ADC Director and then accepting the role of Executive Director in 2003. We have accomplished much during this time. Not the least was the building of our facility and being debt free. I was deeply honored on June 12th, to receive the ElderServe 2015 Champion For Aging Award. For those of us in the Aging services field here in Louisville, this is somewhat like receiving the Academy Award’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
