As a recovery mentor, Lydia provides assistance securing clean and sober housing, employment, referrals to 12-step programs, clothing, and much more. She is dedicated to helping her clients and continuing to build relationships with community partners.
Among her accomplishments is the creation of training videos for the jail. For instance, on the “Triggers Trip” Lydia takes women downtown on public transportation so they can learn how to get around without putting themselves at high risk. “It’s a great feeling to wake up in the morning and help those wounded women who are fighting for their lives and want to live another way,” Lydia said.
