What’s New at the Mission?

Christmas Dinner – December 23

More than 100 volunteers made it possible for us to serve 992 Christmas dinners; the most we’ve ever served!

We were sad not to be able to have our in-person Christmas dinner, but due to COVID-19 we had to adjust. We provided carry-out meals, and the for the first time, we also delivered Christmas dinner.

We invited people to call in and reserve a meal and the response was overwhelming. Volunteers delivered over 700 meals. We are so thankful we were able to serve additional people who may not have been able to join us in person.  

Thank you so much for your generosity that made it possible for so many people to receive a home-cooked, traditional Christmas dinner!!

2020 street guide

Food. Clothing. Shelter

Thank you for caring about our homeless neighbors!

Do you have your copy of the 2020 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!
