A few of the people you helped in 2019...

Shirley was living in a local shelter, but really wanted a home of her own. Thanks to you, Shirley is now housed and has a place to call her own. And, thanks to a generous donor, she also received a Welcome Home basket full of household supplies to help her settle into her new place.

WHY WE WALK

Sydney wanted to find a home that would allow him to keep his dog, Tucker, who had lived on the streets with him for many years. Thanks to your support, we were able to help him find a home where he and Tucker could stay together.

Roshenna and her children moved to Lexington from Michigan. She had a job, but was having a tough time finding a home she could afford.  Because of you, we were able to help her find affordable housing and move her family into their new home.

Homeless Intervention Program

Help end homelessness in our community! 

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.
