Shepherd’s House

The Shepherds House was an idea born in 1984 by Fred Hood, a parishioner at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Lexington, KY.  Fred’s son, John, was at Charter Ridge for treatment and it was strongly suggested he attend a halfway house for long-term care and programming.  There were no suitable programs in the Central Kentucky region.   Fred, and many others at good Shepherd and in the community, were advocates for developing a world class recovery housing environment in Lexington.

Mission Health Lexington

In the fall of 2000, Jim and Becky Connell felt led by the Lord to start a ministry to the poor and homeless. In April 2001, Jim left his job in Columbus, Indiana, and moved to Lexington to start the Lexington Rescue Mission.

Four months later, the mission purchased a building on North Limestone with the help of a generous gift from a Lexington couple. On November 21, 2001, services started with a Thanksgiving banquet at Broadway Christian Church. The mission then opened its doors to anyone in need of food, clothing, and financial assistance and began offering Bible studies and chapel services for guests.

Over the years, the mission has grown and changed to meet the needs of those we serve. Today, people in need come to the mission for help with food, finding affordable housing, getting off the streets, connecting to treatment, getting back on their feet in our transitional housing, finding lasting employment, and re-entering the community after incarceration.

In all that we do, our vision remains the same: rebuilding broken lives on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ. Through Him, we see lives changed.
