I want to share this with all-it really warms your heart to see how much decorating can really make a very dismal area home for these residents. A friend in North Carolina sent this to me:
Thought you would enjoy seeing what’s happening at the local Women and Children’s shelter here. Such a great idea. When the residents are able to leave they get to take their new decor stuff with them so the organization is continually seeking volunteers in the community to redo rooms for new residents. The service league I belong to helped a few years ago back when it all began two years ago but I had not seen the complete transformation. Anyway – given your line of work I thought this video that shows the power of making a place “home” would really warm your heart.
