After this Lu became the director of the D.A.R.E. program in Cheney from 1990 to 1997. Lu was blessed with God given talent to care for children and they loved her dearly and were always glad to be with her. Lu also had a day care center for quite a few years, she took care of up to 20 children easier than most people could take care of one.
