Lexington Rescue Mission

Every day, we see people struggling with poverty and homelessness. We provide help to meet their critical needs -- food, clothing, housing, and employment -- and build a relationship of trust to minister to their deeper needs. Through prayer, education, mentoring, and pastoral counseling, we offer healing from the inside out. Ultimately, we invite hurting people into the presence of Jesus Christ, who provides hope for tomorrow and for eternity.

Help. Healing. Hope. That's what we're all about.

We work to meet the needs of the whole person -- physical, emotional, and spiritual -- and our work has been proven effective. In 2017, 83% of clients who came to walk-in hours had their acute needs met, 74% of our clients who were placed in jobs maintained their employment, 82% of clients staying at The Potter's House have maintained in their sobriety, and 94% of men and women in our re-entry program have not returned to incarceration.

We continue to pursue the highest quality of services, and as such have maintained our accreditation from the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM) and earned the Top-Rated Nonprofit designation from Great Nonprofits. We are also committed to fiscal transparency and accountability, as demonstrated by our accreditation by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). LRM was an early adopter of GoodGiving.net, has been named a 2018 Top-Rated Nonprofit by GreatNonprofits.org, and has received the Platinum Seal from the GuideStar Exchange for our commitment to transparency.
We need volunteers to serve in a variety of capacities, everything from mentoring to teaching classes to picking up food donations. For our most up-to-date list of volunteer opportunities and to access our online volunteer application, please visit our website at lexingtonrescue.org.

We depend upon donations of food, both perishable and non-perishable, to serve more than 42,000 meals a year. Donations of toiletries, winter wear, tents, and sleeping bags also benefit our many homeless guests. Additionally, we can always use donations of Bibles, particularly large-print versions, to give to people who need a Bible.
