How to move storage from Partition to LVM /home that's part of that partition?

Hi,

I have a lot of extra space on partition sda5 that I'd like to give to /home (fedora-home). Unfortunately, this is something I am not well-versed in and would really appreciate any assistance. How can I move that extra 497.6 GB to the home LVM if they're on the same partition?

Below is the output from running fdisk -l, lsblk, and df -Th.
