Houstory partners with nonprofit providing transitional housing for women, children

Houstory is committed to building a company that is not only profitable, but responsible, sustainable and community-minded.

With these values in mind, Houstory created the “Houstory Helps” Program. In the future, Houstory will choose various charities to highlight, all of which share and value the importance of a home — some home — for all.

Lydia Place provides a multi-faceted, six-month transitional housing program that supports women and their children.

For now, with every purchase of a Home History Book, Houstory Publishing, LLC, will donate a portion of its proceeds to Lydia Place in Bellingham, Wash. Working with Lydia Place, a multi-faceted, six-month transitional housing program that supports women and their children, is a natural fit for Houstory Publishing, a company that celebrates and recognizes the importance of “home.”

Founded in 1989, Lydia Place provides:

• Six month transitional housing • Twelve month follow-up program • Individual goal-setting and case management • Weekly monitoring of individual goals • Life skills training • Individual budget assistance • Therapeutic Children’s Program • Education and/or employment support and advocacy • Community resource referrals • Advocacy and accompaniment services
