This month’s speaker is Laurene "Laurie" Gramling Lambach, who is the CEO of SET Ministry, Inc. which is a community-based organization that has been serving the Milwaukee community since 1985. She holds a deep understanding of strength-based initiatives that lead to family stability and wellness for parents and children. A CPA and MBA with over 20 years’ progressive experience in various for-profit companies as well as, most recently, more than 16 years of executive experience in the non-profit sector, she brings a classical management education and much expertise in entrepreneurism, organizational development and sustainable design of projects and programs.
SET Ministry builds pathways to increased self-sufficiency for over 4,000 people of all ages each year in Milwaukee’s central-city by Inspiring Hope through Healing, Uncovering Capabilities and guiding people to Redefine Life. SET works to break multi-generational cycles of harm within families and dreams of a day when Milwaukee’s children can and do live in peace and stability within their own families. SET’s theory of change is based on the Adverse Childhood Experiences study (ACEs) which informs the manner in which SET operationalizes Catholic Social Teaching with a blend of science and compassion.
