Transformations is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that, with the help of volunteer interior design professionals and others, makes the apartments of low-income families, and recent foster-care grads, "feel like home."
Our volunteer designers discuss with clients what it would take to make their residences feel like home, and the designers listen well. The needs vary: better lighting, a dedicated place for a child to do homework, favorite colors, even enough appropriate storage for a young man's shoes!
We enlist the help of the clients too, so that they feel pride and ownership of the results of their work. When we have completed a project, our clients -- many of whom have never before been asked what they would like -- have an apartment that reflects their preferences, and encourages healthy, positive growth, as well as improved physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. The completion of each project results in a stronger, more productive individual and a stronger community.
We do one major fundraiser for the year! Our goal is to jump start our efforts to help future clients "One Design Project" at a Time!
We could not do all that we do without our volunteers! If you are looking for a way to give back to your community, please volunteer with Transformations!!!! We need help with collecting money, household goods, donations and of course, installation on the big day.
