Give back to the community by participating in the Leadership Oakland "Day of Service"!
May 16, 2015 | 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Humble Design, a Pontiac based 501c3 nonprofit organization is rallying together with 60 members from Leadership Oakland Cornerstone class to help fully furnish and decorate 6 existing homes for Grace Centers of Hope. This event will take place on Saturday, May 16th from 10:00am to 3:00pm. The day will be filled with home decorating, spring lawn clean up and end with a park celebration with volunteers and the families from the homes.
Humble Design started in 2009 and assists families in need who are transitioning out of homeless and domestic abuse shelters by providing furnishings and design services to their new place of residence. They use donated furniture and in kind goods to turn bare rooms into a fully furnished and decorated home. Many of their clients leave the shelter with just the clothes on their back and do not have the means to furnish their new space. That’s where Humble Design steps in and makes their house a livable, comfortable home.
Grace Centers of Hope is a non-profit Christian organization committed to positively changing the lives of the homeless, addicted and unwanted through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, personal accountability, life skills education and work-related programs. The foundation of change is the local church which encourages residents to become strong in faith and independence while it lovingly promotes a sense of belonging within a community that truly can be called “home”.
