2023 Walk for Warmth

The Lexington Rescue Mission invites you to their 16th annual Walk for Warmth, where we will walk to move families out of homelessness in Lexington.

The 2023 walk is so critical.  We are receiving 8-12 requests PER DAY for housing assistance, and right now, we can only help about six people per week. Your participation and fund-raising efforts will help ensure that when people who are homeless come to the mission for help, we are able to help them find and move into affordable housing.

We will start the walk at our new building, 535 West Second Street. We will begin at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, February 18th and we will end with a celebratory lunch! You can sign up now by going to www.walkforwarmth.org

    2022 Street guide


    This guide is designed to help our homeless neighbors access basic necessities in Lexington. You can help by printing and sharing it with men, women and youth who are in need. We recommend keeping a few copies in your car or putting one in your wallet or purse. You can also give several guides to your workplace, school or church to keep on-hand for anyone in need.

    Thank you for your compassion for those in need!
