Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2012
The outstanding generosity, kindness and altruistic efforts of more than 50 Los Angeles community members is the essence of the Designed From The Heart "Charity Design Project with Beit T'Shuvah." In a gift to the community, these talented people have volunteered their time and effort for the residents of Beit T'Shuvah, Los Angeles's renowned non-profit addiction treatment facility, all on their own accord and free of charge. They range from professional interior designers to people whom simply have a flare for decorating, style and most of all huge hearts.
Beit T'Shuvah, the 150 bed facility, with it's ubiquitous waiting list (a rarity for a treatment-center) and enormous positive impact it has made in the lives of so many people, caught the eye of interior designer, Heidi Bendetson, founder of the non-profit organization Designed From the Heart and her co-chair Rhonda Snyder, both pillars of Los Angeles's Jewish community. No small undertaking, Heidi and Rhonda reached out to a host of Los Angeles's philanthropic people and spearheaded the redesign project of all 40 primary rooms in the residential treatment facility. In order to garner support, they expressed their goal - a fresh and new living environment at the facility, conducive to inspiring better lives for the residents that go through the program. Appealing to the greater good has proven to be a recipe for success; over fifty people are participating in this grand gesture.
What would typically cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in furnishings, design, time, and effort- in an "Extreme Makeover" of the temporary homes of 80 men and women - is 100% donation based. Both local and national furniture vendors are donating items to beautifully adorn each room in a sustainable way, that will endure another 25 years of Beit T'Shuvah's success in facilitating recovery from addiction. Beit T'Shuvah is immensely thankful to all those who are participating in the design project; as all funds received go directly to the unparalleled care of every resident, keeping in accordance with the original mission: Not to turn any person away due to their ability to pay.
