Join us for a night of celebration at our 2021 Lydia's Place Gala "COMING HOME"!  This annual event enables us promote our services and ministry to the community, sharing our mission as well as raising funds to meet the needs of those we serve. This year we look forward to celebrating our successes while raising awareness and sharing our vision to help change lives for students in our area who have experienced foster care and/or homelessness.
