LYDIA Home

LYDIA Home At a time when our culture often seems to be coming apart, LYDIA is helping put families back togeth Hope is a future. Home is finding a child's forever family.
(26)

LYDIA provides Hope, Healing and Home to children in foster care. Lydia empowers kids exposed to trauma to believe in a brighter tomorrow. Healing is the restoration of God-given dignity. Lydia provides an integrated, holistic approach to help children recover from the emotional, physical and/or sexual abuse they’ve endured. For those who live at Lydia, home means a safe and nurturing environment

for them to grow. LYDIA Home Association is a Christian, non-profit organization that has been serving children in Chicago since 1916. Our mission is to strengthen families to care for children and to care for children when families cannot. Our programs are meant to both serve youth in care and be a blessing to our local community. LYDIA Home Association was named after a woman in the Bible recorded in the book of Acts. The woman, Lydia, was a faithful, Godly woman who opened her home to those who needed shelter. (Acts 16:14-15)

Tis' the season here at Lydia Home & we're looking for your help!
‎‏‏‎
With over 70 children in our care, we're hard at work to fulfill each child's list so on Christmas morning, they can feel the magic of Christmas, too! 🎁
‎‏‏‎
🎄What does that look like and how you can you help?
‎‏‏‎
You can sponsor an item, a few items, a list, or organize a drive with your church, organization, or friends to take on a few.

Our children know the real meaning of Christmas and are always grateful for anything they receive. 🌟 Truly, anything is a blessing.

Did you know? 💔
‎‎‎‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎
Yes, on average, the age of children in our foster care system is just 6 years old.
‎‎‎‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎
When children should be thinking about back to school, and all the magical, fun things that exist at that age, some are instead being placed in the system.
‎‎‎‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎
This is one reason we work so hard at LYDIA to love, care, and place our children in wonderful foster homes. Have you felt called to foster?

📣 ANNOUCEMENT ~ DATE CHANGE 📣

Due to a scheduling conflict with the location, Busse Woods is no longer able to accommodate Footsteps for Families on June 3rd. For this reason, our event has been moved to June 24, 2023.
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
✅Same Time.
✅Same Location.
✅Same Grove.
📅 Different Saturday!
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
While we know some of you were not able to make it June 3rd, we're also hoping this means you'll be able to support our cause and come out on June 24th.
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
And of course there is still a virtual option you can choose to win prizes, raise funds and spread awareness so we can continue to serve children in care.

You've heard us shouting from the rooftops about our 5K/1 Mile Walk and we're hoping you'll join us on June 24th!!
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
Here's the thing! ☝️
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
This is the easiest $25-$35 donation you'll make AND we wouldn't be able to spread the word without YOU.
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
Your steps that day, your sharing of your fundraising page for your walk for us (you receive one when you register), your dedication to our cause.... each and every action truly makes a difference in the life of a child at Lydia who had no choice in the circumstances they were put in. 💗
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
It's our job to stand up for them, to take the steps, to spread the word....
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
Because without YOU supporting our cause, we couldn't surround families and children with compassion, healing, and love. 🫶
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
Will you join us?

Run 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️💨 (Now to register and in the future with us on June 3rd!)
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
Early bird pricing is ending soon! If you're someone who has had it on your list to register, don't delay! Your registration is a donation to us, and Safe Families, and will be used to continue to help keep children safe!
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
Every donation truly makes a difference so we'd love for you to "run" on over and sign up so you can run that day, too! (or walk, in person, or virtually!)
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍
We hope you'll partner with us in this fun way to fundraise and raise awareness for our causes. 🥇🥈🥉
