For close to 100 years, LYDIA Home Association has been making a difference in the lives of Chicago children and families who are dealing with everything from homelessness and poverty to abuse and neglect. LYDIA has a residential treatment center that’s home to 40 kids, plus non-traditional high schools, foster care program and much more. These kids are dealing with a lot, but they know one thing for sure: at LYDIA, they are loved. Join us to make an impact!
Strengthening families to care for children
and caring for children when families cannot.
