More than 400 smiles filled the reception hall, every donor ready to support to their local nonprofit over food and drinks. Volunteers of Lydia Place spare no detail in their signature event of the year, “Hearts for Housing.”

On Saturday, Feb. 6, Emily O’Connor, executive director of Lydia Place, said the event is the biggest event Lydia Place has organized to date.

Lydia Place’s mission is to support all people in establishing sustained independence by providing housing, supportive services, advocacy, education and by raising awareness of the faces and causes of homelessness, according to their website.
