Work on the new affordable housing building is moving along rapidly as we look forward to the first tenant families moving in this spring. Interior finishes throughout the apartments are nearing completion and the first floor preschool space is coming along on schedule. The residential space has been transformed with the doors and trim installed and a fresh coat of paint on all walls and ceilings.

Lydia’s House is so grateful for the generosity of Organized Living and 15 of their staff for donating all the materials and installation of closets and hardware in the eight apartment units. In early February, more cabinets and counter tops are scheduled to be installed. With each passing day of hard work, the apartments are coming together and are feeling more and more like homes.

We look forward to opening the new apartment building for formerly homeless families on March 17 and invite you to the ecumenical blessing service starting at 4pm at the old St. Elizabeth’s in Norwood, 1759 Mills Avenue, with building tours to follow. Please RSVP to”
