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 1 of the Lydia’s Place renovation project, we anticipate being able to provide temporary housing and services for up to three families or up to 10 people. 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, unless there has been domestic violence. Also, it is often difficult for families of adolescent males to stay together because of shelter rules and restrictions.
