SHARE stands for Services for Human Advancement and Resource Enhancement. SHARE is a non-profit social service center for the economic and social advancement of the Lexington community. Our goal is to assist in the development of the individual, family, and community self-sufficiency, and to provide the tools and guidance to individuals so that they can become healthy, whole, righteous human beings including all race, religion and backgrounds. We strive to Make a Difference and Show Compassion in Lexington so that the individual is not relying on the Community but applying their abilities and committed desires to become self-reliant and remaining productive.
The primary means of attaining this is through our focus on helping people locate and get jobs.
