How We Help

HOW WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
LexCare maintains a fund to assist individuals and families with financial and material needs when other sources are not available to them. This fund is supported solely by private contributions.  LexCare member agencies review the individual’s or family’s need for the following types of assistance, and then make requests for LexCare funds.

Bus Rides
LexTran bus passes are available for qualifying individuals who are in need of transportation for legitimate, necessary reasons, such as for medical appointments, job interviews and counseling.

Car Repairs
Emergency assistance is provided for basic car repairs for individuals who are in financial crisis and have no other reasonable options for critical transportation to work, job interviews and/or medical appointments, for example.

Diapers
LexCare purchases disposable diapers in bulk and distributes them to the Family Care Center on Harry Sykes Way. Families in need of an emergency supply of diapers may contact the center at 859-218-2273.

Medical and Dental Bills
Financial assistance is available for individuals or families in crisis to help pay medical and dental bills.

Rent and Mortgage Assistance
Financial assistance is available for individuals or families in crisis to help with rent or mortgage payments in order to prevent eviction.

Utility Bills
