ECM Hospitality House


Ecumenical Campus Ministries (ECM) has been a welcoming and safe place for students and the Lawrence community for over 100 years. 

The ECM building was constructed in 1959. The lower level of the building served as an intentional living space for over 40 years. Now we have a new vision.  This October, we will open the ECM Hospitality House. This space will accommodate students, families, travelers, university departments, and community organizations. The goal is to provide affordable, convenient, and comfortable lodging while also supporting the ECM’s outreach mission.
We need your help. Immense progress has been made and numerous hours invested. Still, there is a long list of essential items (see below) needed in order for the ECM Hospitality House to be efficient, cozy, and appealing to the people we host.  Your gift (of any amount) will go towards improving the building and living space.

Thank you for supporting the ECM's mission and our community!
