Lydia’s Place will serve women, children and families experiencing homelessness in central North Carolina by providing a safe, comfortable and supportive environment for temporary housing – often the first step in establishing sustainable independence.
Upon completion of Phase I of the Lydia’s Place renovation project, we anticipate being able to provide temporary housing for up to three families or ten people. We will also provide case management for shelter guests and for others facing homelessness or housing insecurity. We hope to complete Phase I in early 2022. Phase II of the renovations will give us capacity to house up to ten families or fifty people. Upon completion of Phase III we will also be able to provide emergency shelter for weather-related events. Phases II and III will be completed in 2023.
Priority will be given to families in and from Randolph County. Lydia’s Place will meet a critical need in our community. Currently, there are no shelters in Randolph County that support women or families experiencing homelessness, except in cases of domestic violence or abuse.
