Lydia's Place - Fostering Futures
We serve young adults age 17-24 who have experienced foster care or homelessness.
LYDIA’S PLACE IS HERE TO HELP
Lydia’s Place demonstrates God’s love by providing basic care for young adults who have experienced foster care or housing insecurity while promoting their growth to independence.
Independent living skills training
Our Independent living skills training helps our students cultivate healthy skills, habits, and coping mechanisms so they can be successful independent adults who raise healthy families.
Skills – Mentorship – Community
Home Place and Arch Village
Housing plays a crucial part in ones ability to succeed. We provide our students with warm, safe, monitored, affordable housing so they can study and rest in peace. We are blessed to have 8 apartments in partnership with Habitat For Humanity and with The AAHS Arch Village.
One on one mentorship
Our mentors spend 4 hours a month with our students, helping the skills they’ve be taught come to life. They also help our student navigate tricky relationships, connect to job opportunities, and help them develop healthy and productive responses to life
Provisions of Hope
Boutique and Baskets
Provisions of Hope is the area of Lydia’s Place that provides felt needs. Under the provisions of Hope umbrella we have the Lydia’s Place Boutique which provides free clothing, housewares, and furniture to anyone involved in the foster care system. We also donate around 300 baskets a year to foster youth starting their first year of college across the state
