Review for Lexington Rescue Mission Inc, Lexington, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We moved here 15 years ago with not much in our pockets, but with hearts that wanted to give someway to our community. We were introduced to the Mission from a friend-of-a-friend. They knew we didn't have a lot of money, but we had some time and hearts full of love. We (my husband and young boys at the time) started "feeding" the homeless. HA! They had no clue that they were feeding us! A church we later joined started an outreach to the mission, so we were involved in that, too! Even now, when my kids come home for spring break or summer (from college!) and need volunteer hours, they always choose the Mission first. Saying that they have wonderful memories there. Please, donate, give your time and talents to this amazing organization! You will not regret it!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing. They do so much more than I can even wrap my mind around.

Review for Lexington Rescue Mission Inc, Lexington, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Lexington Rescue Mission is a Godsend to those that need and use their services, but also those of us who serve and give. For almost 10 years my family and I choose LRM to give our time and resources. Not only because it's what we are called to do, but because every time we do, WE are blessed. The people who walk through the door who are hungry or need a little help end up brightening up the day of those who are helping them. My children have also served for all these years and they have seen that they are needed, even though they are young and as they grow, they will take that with them int the world.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
