About

Dealing with the challenges of today requires someone to bring a different perspective and is willing to step out of their comfort zone to make a difference in the lives of the people they encounter.
Lydia’s Nest “The Help Center” emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Established in 2015, we’re a non-profit organization driven by compassion for others, bold actions, and a strong foundation of love for humanity. Contact us to learn more and get involved.

The Vision of Lydia’s Bowels of Mercy Home is to be a Community Resource Center whose services ensure educational, physical, emotional, and social health and equality, for disadvantaged families by “Changing the world one person at a time.”

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide the coordination of resources to educate, empower, and improve the health and wellness in the lives of the disadvantaged while strengthening families and communities in a culturally sensitive environment.
