Help end homelessness in our community! 

Kim had been homeless for some time before she came to the Mission. Thanks to the efforts of those who participated in the Walk for Warmth, Kim is now housed and has a place to call her own. She was also recently blessed with furniture and a new puppy!

Homeless Intervention Program

A few of the people you helped in 2018...

After 21 years of living in her home, Cherilyn was suddenly forced to leave by her landlord. Because of you, we were able to help her find affordable housing and move into her new home.

Randall is a veteran who found himself homeless in Lexington. Thanks to your support, we were able to help him move into a home of his own right before the holidays.

WHY WE WALK

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.
