Wednesday, I spent the afternoon in Evanston at “Boys Hope Girls Hope,” a privately funded, non-profit, multi-denominational organization that provides at-risk children with a stable home, high quality education, and the support they need to reach their full potential. Many of their children come from home environments marked by abuse, poverty or neglect. Others come from caring families unable to meet the child’s needs because of poverty, violence or dangerous neighborhoods.
Together with Brandy Rinehart, from Beverly Hammel Kitchen and Bath, I am working with Designs 4 Dignity, an organization committed to the transformation of non-profit spaces via pro-bono design services, to rework one of the homes. Mostly a decorative project, we will be transforming their first floor living and dining spaces and their office and study areas in the basement. Here are some before images.
