On Thursday, March 10, Foundation Trustees and members of The 77 committee teamed up with Humble Design for a day of volunteering. Participants helped furnish a four-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment for a family of 7 in North Lawndale.
Humble Design serves individuals, families and veterans emerging from homelessness by transforming their empty house into a warm, welcoming and uplifting home with donated furniture and household goods. They use donated household goods to transform these spaces that lead to successful lives. Across the country, Humble Design warehouses are curated and stocked by design teams that personalize homes by providing a dignified, life-changing experience for clients.
According to Humble Design, up to 50% of families return to shelters after entering houses. With Humble’s help, only 1% of families return to homelessness after 12 months.
