Clean Clothes Change Lives

Living on the streets means going without the basics most of us take for granted, such as clean clothes.

The Mission’s new Laundry Ministry provides dignity and respect for un-sheltered guests by offering a place to have their laundry done.

Twice a week, the first five guests to sign up will have a small bin of laundry washed and folded by volunteers. This means up to 40 guests each month will have clean clothes and the self-respect that goes along with them. For some, it can be the first step toward a job and a better future.

If you are interested in supporting our new laundry ministry, you can make a donation online and designate it to “laundry.”

 

 

 

We Want to Hear From You

On Wednesday, March 27, people all over Lexington will share their opinions as part of “On the Table,” an initiative sponsored by the Blue Grass Community Foundation. The Lexington Rescue Mission will host four brainstorming sessions on March 27, and we would love for you to join us for the topic that is of most interest to you.

Welcome Home – 9 – 10 a.m., Outreach Center, 444 Glen Arvin 
Join us for coffee, donuts and a conversation about the real challenges of finding and accessing safe, affordable housing and how we can open doors for more housing options.

Welcoming Ex-Offenders Home – 12- 1 p.m., 629 N. Broadway
Join us for a lunch discussion of the particular challenges men and women face when they return home from prison or jail and how we can make that transition an easier one. 

Creating a Sober-Friendly Community – 6-7 p.m., 629 N. Broadway Grab a slice of pizza and let’s talk about the challenges of living clean and sober in Lexington and ways we can make our city a more welcoming place for people recovering from addictions.

Second-Chance Employment – 7-8 p.m., 629 N. Broadway
Enjoy dessert and coffee while we talk about the challenges of finding a job, particularly for people leaving incarceration or recovering from addictions to drugs or alcohol. Help us brainstorm steps we can take to help open doors for those who struggle most to find employment.

To register for any of these discussions, contact Kim Livesay at (859) 381-9600, ext. 227.
