I've had the privilege of partnering with the Lexington Rescue Mission for the past several years for various events, and the love and care they show for each person who walks through the Mission doors is evident in all aspects of their ministry.

During my time at the LRM, I discovered a dedicated group of servant minded folks. The staff go above and beyond a 9-5 and provide a leaning work enviorment which makes it possible to get the real work done.

I found my calling as a prisoner re-entry counselor through Americorps at the Lexington Rescue Mission. From there I was fortunate to attend law school, become a public defender, and now serve in the legislature. I continue fighting for prisoner's rights... And I would have never known that was possible before I stepped into the Lexington Rescue Mission.

I've had the privilege of working with Lexington Rescue Mission for about 10 years. They make a huge impact in our community for the better. I dare say many people would not be alive today if not for the work of Lexington Rescue Mission. Certainly hundreds if not thousands of lives have been touched, and greatly improved by the ministries of Lexington Rescue Mission. Their reputation in Central Kentucky is second to none. I feel 100% comfortable donating my time and money to the mission because I know their integrity is above reproach. The people of Lexington are truly blessed to have a ministry of this caliber serving our community.

It has been my privilege to volunteer in mostly a maintenance and construction role since Lexington Rescue Mission was started. I was drawn by its founder and by its mission. I continue to volunteer there because these things have not changed. They are still striving to help others in a Christian way.

I have been involved with this ministry for several years now. The ministry from year to year has been constant in their focus on the people and of their needs. As a volunteer they are appreciative and remember your name and past involvements in the different ministries available.

I started volunteering at the Mission over 10 years ago, and I have been donating money also. This place does all in the name of Jesus Christ. They serve wonderful meals to anyone in the community, as well as providing housing for homeless men. I started working 8 years ago, and have not been able to volunteer regularly since then, but the mission has grown and expanded its services to the community in so many ways! It's a privilege to be able to support them in any way!

Lexington Rescue Mission is an awesome place. My son and I have volunteered there for a few years now in several didn't things. As a 9 yr old he loves it. He loves to serve the people and hear there stories. I have also taken many of my friends who aren't religious , but now love to serve cause of th love and help shown and seen at the mission. The staff is awesome. Like a huge family. We see all sorts of people who ask for help and volunteer and it's great how the reactions are when they are treat like humans and not anything less. This is a great place and I would love to see it grow in our community as it's grown on me...
