We are so excited for the opportunity to overhaul 13 rooms in the River of Life Women and Children's Emergency Shelter, located in Humboldt Park, part of the Chicago Dream Center!! Our vision is to make the space homey and restful for kids and moms as they work through a difficult season in life. We want these families to have a sense of safety and to feel cared for as they diligently work to get back on their feet.
100% of donated funds will go towards the materials needed to turn the rooms into a comfortable, safe and functional space. The needs include: paint, lighting, bedding, window treatments, storage, hardware and flooring. We will purchase items that are cost effective and durable. Labor is being donated by the hands of many volunteers over the course of this project.
We currently have 4 rooms painted and have installed shelves and two new ceiling fans in those rooms!! (All paint & painting materials, for those rooms, was donated to us by friends and a local retail store!) We hope to finish all 13 rooms by March 15th, 2014.
All donations are tax deductible. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
