LYDIA offers a wide range of services to support families and individuals. If you don’t see something that you need, please contact us to see if we can help.
Bring balance and clarity in the midst of the confusion. Working closely with a certified life coach, cut through all the noise and distress to focus on what really matters. We are solution-focused in our approach, and client-focused in every session. It’s about what you need and what’s best for your family.
Worried about navigating all the services out there or not even sure where to begin? Let us help.
We get it. The paperwork is overwhelming. Applying for welfare, gathering information and forms, filling everything out – it can get exhausting. We walk with you through the entire process, even providing written referrals when needed.
Job loss. Divorce. Sudden move. Death in the family. Children acting out. No more passion in the relationship. You talk, we listen. No judgment.
Workshops & Classes
We teach groups and small classes topics such as basic life skills in financial literacy and cooking to job skills such as resume writing and interview techniques.
