Genesis Cottage on Place of Hope’s Leighan and David Rinker Campus in Boca Raton received a fashionable update thanks to an interiors donation from Rooms To Go in partnership with International Materials Foundation.
The South County cottage has offered safe and affordable transitional and supportive housing for aged-out foster youth, homeless youth and families, and human trafficking survivors. It has housed 54 youth since its inception. In anticipation of new residents, Place of Hope decided that it was the perfect time for a refresh. A grant from International Materials Foundation allowed the Place of Hope team to make repairs and paint the cottage. International Materials staff also donated their time with fifteen volunteers who cleaned, decorated, and prepared the cottage to serve moms in transition.
“This is the second year International Materials has partnered with Place of Hope and we could not be more thankful for their compassion for the homeless youth and moms in transition that this cottage serves,” said Charles Bender, Place of Hope Founding CEO. “Rooms To Go has been a faithful partner to our mission and we were impressed by their generous donation of new furniture for this cottage. We are so blessed by these key community partners that want to further the mission of Place of Hope.”
Rooms To Go supported this project by supplying new full-size beds, dressers, nightstands, and other bedroom essentials for the cottage.
“Rooms To Go has always felt a special affinity for organizations that help children,” said Janis Altshuler, Senior Vice President at Rooms To Go. “We are delighted to partner with Place of Hope again this year and applaud their efforts in the Palm Beach County communities.”
