I have supported the Lexington Rescue Mission for many years when several of the guys from the recovery program walked a few blocks to attend church with us. I'm blessed to get to call them friends. It's so inspirational to attend their graduations to see how God has used the folks at LRM to grow these men toward faith, family and sobriety. I've also been able to volunteer at the annual Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. What a joy! I am confident my meager donations will be used to bring love and healing to many hurting people in Lexington.

My daughter had the opportunity to be a part of the Lexington Rescue Mission staff as a social worker in their homeless prevention progam. She came to them through the Mission's partnership with AmeriCorps. Lindsey was a recent BSW graduate looking for her first job. Not only does the Lexington Rescue Mission reach out to those in our community who are in need of help, the Mission has a history of reaching out to the young professionals who are eager to put their educational training into action. Lindsey completed her year of service through AmeriCorps and stayed another year as a paid staff member. Her professional and personal growth was inspired by the dedicated staff and volunteers of t he Lexington Rescue Mission. It was a difficult decision for her to leave in order to attend graduate school. The experience she gained working with the homeless and nearly homeless through the Lexington Rescue Mission's outreach programs were invaluable as she pursued a MSW. Lindsey speaks highly of the level of service that the Mission provides to our city and continues to maintain friendships with the staff.
