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 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 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.
