Lydia Place was founded in 1989 and has been serving homeless families for the past 26 years. The mission of Lydia Place is to support all people in establishing sustained independence by providing housing, supportive services, advocacy, education, and by raising awareness of the faces and causes of homelessness. At Lydia Place, we believe that housing is a basic human right. We believe that in order for an individual to reach their true potential, this basic human right must be met. Further, we recognize that inequality and oppression exist and are among the root causes of poverty and homelessness. We believe that collaboration with individuals, families, and the community is the key to sustained independence. Together with our community partners, our collective goal is to end homelessness in Whatcom County.
