What We Do


Our vision is a community without homelessness


The mission of Lydia Place is to support all people in establishing sustained independence by providing housing, supportive services, advocacy, education, and by raising awareness of the faces and causes of homelessness.

Our Beliefs

At Lydia Place, we believe that housing is a basic human right. We believe that in order for an individual to reach their true potential this basic human right must be met. Further, we recognize that inequality and oppression exist and are among the root causes of poverty and homelessness. We believe that collaboration with individuals, families, and the community is the key to sustained independence.
