Lexington Rescue Mission

  • 3 people are interested

We have a number of homeless men who come to Lexington Rescue Mission in the morning for coffee and pastries and to get warm, and we need male volunteers who can sit and drink coffee with them and get to know them. As a volunteer, you can listen to their stories, encourage them in their struggles, offer prayer, and connect them to services at the Mission that can help them get off the streets.
