Lydia House – Services for Women and Children

It’s a little-known fact that between 40-45% of homeless people in our community are women and children, and that number is growing. This is precisely why Lydia House is such an important part of Long Beach Rescue Mission.

Our 50-bed Lydia House provides solace and hope in the face of abuse, addiction, financial hardship and abandonment. Lydia House also assists many in finding more acute care facilities, while striving to move all guests into semi-permanent housing.

Lydia House services are not available to walk-ins or emergencies. For referrals and walk-in services for families, please visit the Long Beach Multi Service Center at 1301 W. 12th Street, LB 90813 or call (562) 570-4900.
