Need help?

Neighbors helping neighbors.

Unprecedented moments of crisis can affect anyone, at any time. None of us are exempt. And the compassion that comes from a neighbor’s helping hand is often the road that leads to recovery. This is what guides Mission Lexington, and why we’re working to bring those in need together with benefactors right here at home in Lexington County who can help.

As a frontline responder, Mission Lexington brings people together to provide life essentials, resources, and guidance for fellow residents across the county who find themselves in crisis. As Lexington’s philanthropic hub we meet both our clients and supporters where they are in their journey.

Because when neighbors uphold neighbors, we are all made better.

  • Driver’s License
  • Social Security Cards for you and children
  • Necessary Documents
    • Paystubs or Proof of Income
    • Utility Bill
    • Hospital discharge paperwork
    • Documentation from Landlord
