My site uses Lightbox to display videos and that works great on all the pages but is there a way I can add one to a widget area on the home page?

How do you put a video into a post/page currently?
The same code should work in a text widget… or perhaps try this plugin:
The code I use now is [video_lightbox_vimeo5 video_id=# width=640 height=480 anchor="name of graphic"] and it works great on regular pages, just not in the widget areas of the home page.
I actually gave up trying for this website and did something else but it would be nice to know for the future.
Odd. Genesis runs all widget content through do_shortcode so that should work — though “doesn’t work” can mean a few things (e.g. it could be a different issue than the shortcode — but I don’t have enough info to know for sure).
You can try this and see if that allows you to use shortcodes in widgets:
