I Have watched Lydia's House grow from a tiny non-profit serving the most vulnerable population, children many of whom were living in unstable homes. Today, Lydia's House is the only Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approved faith-based counseling agency in Ward 8, Lydia’s House is making it possible for first time home buyers to purchase property in the Washington metropolitan area. As a District funded full-service housing counseling agency, Lydia’s House provides homeless and homeowner counseling, foreclosure prevention and financial literacy. Today, Lydia's House has expanded its work to work with individuals and families who are struggling with foreclosure issues, helping them to navigate the road to successfully remain secure in homeownership

Lydia's House is a United Way Organization and a Combined Federal Campaign charity that provides critical support to individuals to increase opportunities for secure housing, access to services and education to increase their financial management skills. The staff works with clients in an caring fashion. It is an honor to serve Lydia's House. I am humbled by their caring, resourcefulness and efficiency.

One of the single most memorable facts I heard repeatedly while working to help revise the Lydia's House 2012-2015 Strategic Plan was the obvious sentiment of the staff who not only are caring people but they genuinely care about the clients who come to Lydia's House. While their focus is to serve low-income residents, each client regardless of the reason for their circumstance, are made to feel as if they are their only client. A staff of three full-time counselors, it is quite an accomplishment to see staff execute this personal and individualized attention for over 1,000 clients served annually.

I have personally seen the families achieve homeownership and independent living thru the work of Lydia's House. And for more than one family! It is such a joy to see these individuals achieve a goal that most of them never thought possible. Thank you Lydia's House for all you have done!
