Lydia Place invites you to a special evening filled with gratitude and holiday merriment as we recognize the local businesses and individuals who have gone above and beyond this year to support Lydia Place’s effort to end homelessness in our community.
A Creative Power Partner is a business that is united in our vision –a vision of compassionate community where every person has the opportunity to thrive, and works with us to provide services or funding that helps us continue to expand our reach and services to the families and individuals we serve.
A Community Champion is someone who promotes, supports, and believes that every family deserves a home and the opportunity to thrive. Someone who has gone above and beyond to advocate for clients, promote outreach and fundraising, or given the gift of volunteerism and made a huge impact on our ability to reach our goals this year.
A Housing Superhero is an individual or business that, like Lydia Place, believes housing is a basic human right. They go above and beyond to advocate for systemic change, and partner with us to ensure that our clients are served equitably and can access the housing resources they critically need. We simply couldn’t do this work without these Housing Heroes in our community.
The Heart of the Organization is awarded to an individual, group, or business that embodies the values of Lydia Place and went above and beyond to pursue our mission –to disrupt the cycle of homelessness and support sustained independence for current and future generations. Their impact on the organization will be forever remembered and we will be forever grateful for their partnership.
