LemonAiD Days supports local homeless children while empowering young people to make a positive difference in our community. By operating a LemonAiD stand during the month of July, kids raise money that supports children staying at The Salvation Army’s Emergency Homeless Shelter in Lexington.

LemonAiD Days



Last year The Salvation Army was a safe haven for over 1,500 homeless individuals including 260 children. Half of Kentucky residents have to spend more than 30% of their income to afford the cost of housing (Kentucky Youth Advocates, 2018) so it’s not surprising that when an unexpected crisis hits, a family can quickly find themselves without a place to live. At our shelter we start by meeting basic needs, with more than 50,000 days of 24 hour shelter and 160,000 meals served last year, but we don’t stop there. We provide comprehensive support that helps families find housing and keep it. In the past two years, 96% of those we served have not returned to our shelter with a repeat episode of homelessness. Learn more about our shelter.
