The goal of The Living Room is to enhance the lives of clients living with chronic conditions by providing a one-room makeover. Using a small budget and creative volunteers, the makeover provides a healing space for individuals dealing with difficult situations of all kinds.
The re-design is relatively simple, but has a tremendous impact. It includes re-purposing items the clients already own and making a few minor purchases and donations that might include curtains, tables and lamps. We often take something that has personal meaning and display it in a new way that really touches our clients heart. The treatment starts at home.
The Living Room has found a way to use the social work and design skills of it’s volunteers to inspire patients with life threatening and chronic illness.
