The LRM helped change my life around. They were there to point the direction for me at a time in my life when I felt my life wasn't my own. They pointed me to numerous resources and organizations that help not only put the pieces of my life back together again but helped me make life long friendships and taught me how to reach out to others in need. Love this organization and all it's wonderful employees and volunteers.
My name is Ryan Farris I was at the Lexington Rescue Mission from 2009 to 20010 when I arrived at the Mission I was a broken man. The staff treated me with dignity and respect, even though I had very little of these things for my self I had struggled with drugs and alcohol most of my adult life. I learned to trust God at the Mission. The curriculum and fellowship at the Mission was based on the teachings of Jesus Christ . I learned new life skills and how to properly study Gods word. The mentorship provided by Christian men like Steve, Chip and Charles was just what I needed. I stayed at the Poters house for a year. When I left I had a job a car and most importantly a new relationship with Christ. After leaving I would return to a life of drugs and alcohol but it was easy to get back on track because while at the Mision the foundation was laid. I would quickly get back on track. By Gods grace and mercy I celebrate 5 years clean and sober. There are so many things I could say about the Mission. However, it can be best sad that God used the Mission to save my life!
I came to The Lexington Rescue Mission as a client. The first thing I noticed is the care and love I received. They really seemed to care about me, and they valued me as a person. I started going to "Steady Hands", and LOVED it! Before I become ill, I was volunteering at Steady Hands, and the "Walk-Ins". God bless the Rescue Mission!
