New Life Day Center --- Our Race Charity Beneficiary

New Life Day Center is a daytime homeless shelter and connecting point. We first serve as a daytime shelter to get homeless persons out of the weather and off the streets. Our focus at NLDC is to care for basic needs, be a connecting point to local resources such as medical care and housing assistance, and to provide a faith community that points people to Jesus. By building relationships and providing personalized assistance, we empower our community to make a positive impact in getting individuals off the streets.  

By participating in the inaugural Brandon True Memorial Heroes for the Homeless 5K Race, you will be directly impacting the homeless in our local community. It is no surprise that running a safe daytime refuge is costly, but we know the impact is far greater than the effort involved. Together, we can spread hope, change lives, and make a lasting impact in the lives of the most vulnerable in Lexington. With your help and support, we are one step closer to changing the landscape of homelessness in our community.
