The Greater Vision Outreach Ministry helps working families struggling financially achieve self-sufficiency through direct service and referrals to other community resources. Greater Vision also works to enhance the services of community non-profit agencies by facilitating and distributing large donations, creating partnerships to improve communication and ministry efficiency, and supporting community outreach efforts.
Individual clients work toward self-sufficiency by making goals and receiving guidance and support from Greater Vision staff and volunteers. Clients receive food at each visit and have the ability to shop for clothing, household items and toiletries.

Human trafficking is - in plain terms - modern day SLAVERY. A victim of trafficking may look like many of the people that you see EVERY DAY. There are approximately 27 million slaves worldwide, more than any other time in history. Slavery is a COMMUNITY problem. At Triad Ladder of Hope, we are working hard to bring awareness to our communities about what is going on right under our noses and how anyone--including YOU--can help. There are a variety of ways to be involved. JOIN US IN THE FIGHT AGAINST MODERN DAY SLAVERY!

We would love to see more families step up to foster or adopt, but we know not everyone can do that. We want to let people know that there is ALWAYS another way you can help! We have seen enormous needs in our foster care system in Davidson County. Foster families and social workers scrambling to try to find clothes, luggage, diapers and other needed items for children entering foster care. YOU can help by making sure the county has all the supplies it needs for these children. Davidson DSS now calls us for 90% of their needs for children entering foster care. Our goal is to provide a comfort bag, clothing bag, gift card and Bible to every child entering care in our county. Join us on our mission.

Coordinating Agency for The Lexington Homeownership Center & The Thomasville Housing Assistance Program
Our mission is to educate, empower, and affirm individuals and families to achieve homeownership, develop new affordable housing, and improve existing housing in the Lexington area.
Since its incorporation, LHCDC has made a positive impact on affordable housing. Throughout Davidson County, LHCDC has provided 740 residents with financial literacy and/or homeownership education. Our repair programs have improved the conditions of over 1100 owned homes, while our renovated homes have provided affordable living to 26 families.
LHCDC researches and implements best practices making it a leading, statewide source for affordable housing development. Our ability to adapt to changing economic times is due to the partnering with entities such as - but not limited to - governmental agencies, non-profits organizations, grant sources, schools, churches, youth groups, businesses and individuals. With partner support, LHCDC has added over two-million dollars to the tax base for Lexington and facilitated over a quarter million dollars towards repairs and down payment assistance investments in Davidson County.
