Lydia's House works in faith to end domestic violence by being a place of healing and a voice of hope for abused women and their children.

The Issue:
  • 1 in 4 women will be affected by domestic violence in their lifetime
  • Every 9 seconds a woman is assaulted or beaten
  • Everyday more than 3 women are murdered by their husbands, boyfriends or partners
  • 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually
  • Domestic violence is the third leading cause of homelessness
How We Make A Difference:
  • Providing safe, confidentially located, fully furnished apartments for up to two years, bridging that critical stepping stone between emergency shelter and safe, independent living
  • Assisting women and their children to create and implement long-term individual life-goal plans which include education, training, employment and safe housing
  • Facilitating access to information and referrals to community resources
  • Creating awareness about domestic violence through community outreach and educational ministry
