Lemonade for Lydia’s Place is a fresh, fun, and worthwhile activity to do with kids of all ages over the summer. When, where, and how many times you have your stand is up to you! We will provide a packet of information and a sign for your stand. The rest is up to your imagination.  A check ceremony will take place at the end of the fundraiser. Everyone will receive a certificate for participating and awards will be given for: 

  • Most Creative Lemonade Stand (Photo tagged on IG and FB) 
  • Most Creative Drink 
  • Most Money Raised
Packet pickup will be announced next summer.

Lydia’s Place serves young adults between the ages of 17 and 24 who’ve experienced foster care or housing insecurity while promoting their growth to independence. Money raised will help cover the cost of independent living skills experiences for our students. One of our program goals is to introduce our students to real-life activities that will solidify their skills training in the real world—for example, Shopping for supplies and having a cooking class to teach nutrition and money management. We look forward to sharing the fun memories with you soon!

Housing - Lydia's Place has eight apartments in Athens, four two bedroom on the west side and four, three bedroom on the east side of down town Athens.

Mentorship - Each student in our program will be matched with an appropriate mentor

Independent living skills training - Elevate is our independent living skill training, we hold classes two Wednesdays a month

Accountability - Our first class staff and interns make sure each student in our program receives one on one attention and care to help them achieve their goals

Support and Direction - Each participant in our program must be working toward or enrolled in secondary education, we help them navigate that journey and support them along the way
