ForRent.com strives for consumers to discover you starting with where you live. As such, we’ve partnered with sister site Homes.com to launch “Crafting for Charity”; a program that will aid organizations that provide transitional housing to families in need.
This June, ForRent.com and Homes.com employees along with design expert Beth Hunter will bring the famed Homes.com “Idea Gallery” to life with do-it-yourself renovation projects for The Nicholas House in Atlanta, Ga. The team will renovate the dining area through several do-it-yourself craft ideas, fresh paint, new furniture, window treatments and more. The two-day effort will wrap up with an exclusive reveal party for residents and staff on Saturday, June 29.
The 30-year old charity, known throughout the Atlanta community for helping homeless families get back on their feet, was long overdue for an upgrade in the dining area. The room, outdated and furnished with plastic folding tables, is an area where more than 50 residents gather to eat meals daily. Dennis Bowman, The Nicholas House executive director shared that everyone gathers in this space at meal time. “It’s a time to share stories and create memories. Even though these families aren’t in a traditional home, we want them to feel comfortable and safe.” Hence why ForRent.com and Homes.com are stepping in!
Beth Hunter, a Homes.com design expert, has created a beautiful and family-friendly design for the space, which includes updated furniture, centerpieces for the tables, and an interactive wall art project featuring some of the current residents. “The Nicholas House works hard to make a positive impact on as many Atlanta families as possible,” said Wendy Froehlich, vice president of marketing. “Homes.com and ForRent.com are honored to celebrate and share in that mission.”
Follow along with our journey, on Facebook and Instagram, as ForRent.com takes The Nicholas House by storm to better serve residents spending time there. “I’m extremely grateful to the ForRent.com and Homes.com team,” said Dennis. “You are helping provide a wonderful new space for The Nicholas House residents to spend quality time together.” And we are overjoyed to do so!
