The BHiveStrong Mission

Our mission is to raise awareness of domestic violence, uplift others by meeting unspoken needs, and give back to victims of domestic violence.

Who We Are

Only a few days after the holidays in January 2022, Lydia Cassady was making plans to leave her longtime partner and father of their two teenage children when he shot and killed her in their home. After murdering Lydia, her partner took his own life a few short days later.

Lydia's world revolved around her children and family. She loved animals, cooking, art, and being outdoors. While we will never know the circumstances of what happened in those final moments of Lydia's life, we will always remember her amazing smile, her contagious laugh, and her creative spirit.

In the months following her death, her family and friends chose to honor Lydia by launching BHIveStrong as a way to give back to others. Lydia’s middle name was Blanche and those that knew her best called her B while the hive represents her family. We find the strength to continue without her by working to help others.

Many people struggle in silence so we seek to find ways throughout the day to meet the unspoken needs of others. We never know what effects a simple act of kindness can have. This is why we're BHiveStrong.
