Lydia Home

LYDIA Home Association is a Christian, non-profit organization serving children in the Chicago area 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 employees fulfill a higher calling, which is embodied in Psalm 82:3 — “Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy.” 

LYDIA is an equal opportunity employer.
