Walk for Warmth
Phoenix Park • 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Help end homelessness in Lexington by strapping on your walking shoes, bundling up, and heading downtown for a two-mile walk. Every dollar raised in this winter walk-a-thon will be used for our Homeless Intervention Program, which helps homeless individuals and families find housing, pays their first month’s rent, and provides three months of home visits to ensure they are able to maintain their housing. So grab some friends to walk with you, and help us move more people out of homelessness this year!

How to Help Panhandlers

We are often asked how we would recommend helping someone who is standing on the side of the road, begging for money. Lexington has more than 558 shelter beds and 15 free meals a day, and giving cash can discourage people from using these services, where they will also be assisted with obtaining permanent housing and offered help to get back on their feet. That is why we encourage donors to provide non-cash assistance — food, LexTran passes, packs of hygiene items, etc. — and give a guide to the local resources available to help them on an ongoing basis. We also hope you will direct them to the Lexington Rescue Mission, where they can receive help meeting their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
