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.



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.


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.”
