We serve young adults age 14 - 26 who have experienced foster care or homelessness.

Lydia's Place Needs Your Help


Lydia's Place serves young adults age 14-26 who have experienced foster care or homelessness. Built on Christian principles, we seek to demonstrate God’s love by providing basic needs during the transition to independent living.

 

Volunteer

Please email and let us know about your area of interest in helping the students we serve. Currently we are planning to start “Lydia’s Leaders” a mentor program on the campus of University of North Georgia, Oconee and we are seeking volunteers, we need help with moving furniture into apartments, marketing and events. If you would like to get involved, please let us know your interest.

Pray

Students who have experienced foster care and/or homelessness navigate unique circumstances, often without extensive networks of support. Pray for these students. Pray for hope and sincere connections.

Donate Financially

Right now, Lydia's Place is fundraising towards a goal of $100,000 to renovate a building in partnership with Habitat for Humanity. We have $20,000 remaining to complete the project. A donation of $500 will provide housing for a student for one month. Donations are tax deductible and should be given to “Lydia’s Place.”

Provisions of Hope Baskets


Donate a Basket

Many students enter secondary education without money to buy basic items to live on their own or to start the school year. Baskets help welcome a student who has overcome all obstacles to attend school.

Approximately 400 young adults age of our foster care each year. Many more experience homelessness. These baskets help welcome a student who has overcome all obstacles to pursue secondary education.

The students we help come from all walks of life, but they all have one thing in common... They have beat the odds by simply being a college student. The people we help are motivated, talented, driven, and surely make the world a better place.
