Madison Area Urban Ministry

Founded in 1971, Madison-area Urban Ministry (MUM)  has served as a prophetic voice for justice in our community for over four decades. MUM is a private, 501 (c) 3 non-profit agency. As an interfaith organization we seek to live out the call across faith traditions to care for our brothers and sisters, to welcome the stranger, and to work for justice. At MUM we adhere to the words of theologian William Sloane Coffin “Charity yes, always, but never as a substitute for justice.”
