Helping to Create a Safe Haven for Those Who Need It Most
In July 2020, we were approached by HomeAid Orlando – a local non-profit organization created to help those experiencing homelessness by leveraging the power and resourcefulness of the Greater Orlando building industry. HomeAid was working with another local organization called The Lifeboat Project and asked if we would be able to donate, not only our interior design services and talents, but furnishings to their Emergency Shelter and Safehouse renovation project. The Lifeboat Project is ones of Central Florida’s leading providers of long-term residential and support services for survivors of human trafficking. We gladly stepped up to the challenge, joining dozens of other building industry partners, to help transform this 4,200 sq. ft. condo building into a sanctuary for those in need.
We walked into the old condo building already in the midst of a full-blown renovation, led by our colleagues in the building industry, Park Square Homes. From what it was, to what is has become is nothing short of amazing, and we are so honored to have been involved. On September 24th – just a little over a month since the start of the renovation, we gathered as a community for an outdoor ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of the newly renovated shelter. It has been an amazing experience to see the building industry come together to provide for those in need.
