In the Athens area, the availability of low cost housing is scarce. In 2020, in partnership with Athens Area Habitat for Humanity, Lydia's Place opened a 4 unit building called Lydia's Homeplace. Each unit has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a kitchen and a living room.

Lydia's Homeplace allows us to establish a secure and steady home as students begin their path to living independently. Lydia's Homeplace is conveniently located off of Atlanta Highway in Athens, GA. This central location along the bus route allows us to assist students at Athens Tech, The University of Georgia,The University of North Georgia - Oconee Campus and Foothills Charter School.

This ministry helps us overcome many obstacles for young adults, such as co-signers, deposits, fees and high rent costs.
