The name “LYDIA” comes from the Book of Acts, which tells the story of a first-century Christian woman who was a dealer in purple cloth. When she saw that the Apostle Paul and his friends had no place to stay, she opened up her home and it became a place of comfort and rest to them.

Like Lydia home in the Bible, you have helped our programs continue to offer a place of comfort and security for the children and families we serve. Thank you for being a part of this journey—and helping us celebrate home.

Whether you’ve been a part of Safe Families or supported LYDIA ministries, we’re grateful for YOU—our friends and benefactors who serve as volunteers, open your homes to provide safety for children, pray faithfully for us, and support us with your generous gifts.

You are the real heroes in our story.

As part of the LYDIA Home Association and Safe Families community, we invite you will join us at a special dinner on Thursday, October 29 as we celebrate powerful stories of transformation that are a result of the work you have made possible through this the programs and movements of this organization.
