Reaching Hearts. Changing Lives.You Can Help.
It often starts with a hot meal, hygiene supplies, or a warm bed. These simple acts of compassion can open the door to addressing the deeper issues that keep hurting people trapped in poverty and offer real hope for the future.
What Drives Us
We exist to glorify God through a Christ-centered ministry that meets the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of hurting people in the greater Lexington area.
We Exist to Serve and Glorify God
Through Christ-Centered Ministry
Since 2001, Lexington Rescue Mission has worked to rebuild lives that have been broken by poverty. Poverty steals peace. It crushes dignity. It destroys hope. So in all that we do, we invite people into the presence of Jesus Christ.
He alone offers peace that passes understanding, the dignity of being a child of God, and lasting hope for eternity. He is the one who redeems that which is broken. And through Him, we see lives changed.
What we do
Caring for those in need
People who are hurting will find help meeting their basic needs at the Lexington Rescue Mission. We offer nutritious meals to anyone who is hungry, clothing for those in need, and a place to rest for the weary. All of our guests are invited to meet with our caseworker who will help them regain financial stability and take steps out of poverty.
Preparing people for work
Men and women who need employment will find help getting back to work at the Lexington Rescue Mission. Our Jobs for Life classes teach the skills necessary to find and keep lasting employment, and graduates are placed in jobs in local businesses so they can provide for themselves and their families.
Helping people get off the streets and out of shelters is at the core of our ministry. We offer transitional housing for homeless men and women who need help getting back on their feet. We also provide housing counseling to help homeless individuals and families move into a home of their own.
Restoring Broken Lives
Men and women whose lives have been broken by trauma, addiction, and incarceration can find healing and hope through the Lexington Rescue Mission. We lead classes in jails, prisons, and in the community that get to the root of self-destructive behaviors and offer lasting freedom in Christ.
We need your time and your talents to reach more of our neighbors in need. Come attend one of our tours, and we’ll introduce you to our team and prepare you to serve at Lexington Rescue Mission.

Those We Serve
“I’m in Heaven here” A bad accident in the coal mine where he had worked for 17 years is where Butch’s addiction began 39 years ago. First, it was Tylenol with codeine. “It got to the point where God started telling me, ‘You’re taking those, and you really don’t need them. You’re taking them for how they’re making you feel.’ I rebelled against that and it hardened my heart.” Butch later started buying street drugs – OxyContin, then Percocet – anything he could get. Then he found cocaine and...
