Lexington Rescue Mission

Reaching Hearts. Changing Lives.

Financial Services

The Mission helps individuals and families experiencing homelessness move into housing through our Homeless Intervention Program, which provides financial assistance for the first month's rent as well as individual budget counseling, resource referral, and case management. If you need help moving from homelessness into housing, please come to our walk-in hours for eligibility screening and assistance.

Last Year

In 2017, we helped 114 families with rent or utilities.

For more information, please contact Kendra Boles, our AmeriCorps Housing Counselor at (859) 381-9600, ext. 231.
