When Mission Lexington began, 13% of the population in Fayette County was not covered by health insurance. Over 33,000 people lived without access to affordable health care. Each year for the past 11 years Mission Lexington has almost doubled the amount of patient visits it has been able to provide to Lexington's most vulnerable residents. Behind every statistic there is a moving story, like George, who lost his job because of the condition of his teeth, but was able to get his job back because of the restorative work of the Mission Lexington Dental Clinic. Your support is vital to the success of Mission Lexington. All clinics are currently seeking compassionate patient-care and clerical professionals who want to volunteer.

That means two things: they develop health problems that become compounded by years of neglect, and their health problems help keep them homeless.
