Lydia Place was founded in 1989 and has been serving individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Whatcom County for the past 30 years.

Our Mission

The mission of Lydia Place is to disrupt the cycle of homelessness and promote sustained independence for current and future generations.

Our Vision

The vision of Lydia Place is a compassionate community where everyone has a home and the opportunity to thrive.

Our Beliefs

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.
