One of Lydia Place’s major funding sources is its community thrift shop, Wise Buys.
Place is a community non-profit serving homeless families for over 25 years! Lydia
Place provides transitional housing, permanent supportive housing services,
permanent housing subsidies, emergency housing, life skills programs, and case
management services. Together with our community partners, our collective goal
is to end homelessness in Whatcom County.
Wise Buys supports Lydia Place programs and provides good, low-cost items to the general public.
Wise Buys is overseen by an all-volunteer staff and open six days a week. Shelves are stocked with great deals for the savvy shopper. Drop by for a fun and treasure filled shopping experience!
