WHY WE WALK

Help end homelessness in our community! 

Homeless Intervention Program

Jovonda was staying at the Salvation Army and working six days a week.
She wanted to be stable before her baby was born in December. Thanks to your support, we were able to help her move into a home of her own and have her budget ready when the baby arrived.

LaShaunda came to the Mission in July needing help with housing. She and her children were homeless, staying temporarily with different family members, but none of the situations were stable. She wanted her children to be able to start the school year in a home of their own, and with your help we were able to make that happen!

Every dollar raised at the Walk for Warmth goes directly to
the Lexington Rescue Mission's Homeless Intervention Program.


This program provides  homeless individuals and families housing counseling and pays their first month's rent to help them get into a new apartment.  After moving in, recipients receive follow-up home visits from our staff to help ensure they are able to afford and keep their home.

After living in their truck for months after Alfred had his leg amputated and lost everything, he and his wife, Alesia, were able to move into their own apartment...and stay there.... because of your support through
the Walk for Warmth!
