Wish List

By giving to Lydia’s House, you have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of women and children escaping domestic violence. You can help make certain that Lydia’s House will remain a vital member of the community, helping to ensure that the women and children who come to us in the wake of abuse will be able to receive the support and resources necessary to rebuild their lives. Through ongoing efforts we continue to improve our programs to provide the best possible support and resources available. Your support can truly help change lives.

Lydia’s House does not accept used toys, books, clothing or sample-sized items. We are not able to accept furniture at this time, but please continue to check our website as our needs change. We ask that all previously used items be cleaned, operational, and need no repair.
