Lydia's House, offering hospitality in the Catholic Worker Tradition
Thank you for a fully funded renovation!
We have completed renovation fundraising, and all of the rooms have been adopted! A full listing of room sponsors is here.  Thank you to all of our supporters and especially to those that come and work every weekend, doing the hard work of putting our house together. We are so blessed by each and every one of you. 

Renovation Update

Now that the drywall is finished floors are going down, paint is going up, and we have moved our office from Vineyard Central Church to our new home! If you haven't been at 2024 Mills Ave since the summer demolition days, you won't believe how the house is coming together. Feel free to email us to schedule a tour:


As we approach the year end, we know that many people consider making gifts. Please think of us, as we begin fundraising for our 2014 operations and prepare our home to accept homeless families in April.
