“Helping Others Feather a New Nest”
Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness has just launched a new program called Homefeathers as an offering in conjunction with CCAA’s “Delivering Hope” Program.
Homefeathers will endeavor to help women and children make a more comfortable home by assisting them in acquiring some of the basic comforts and necessities. Most recipients of this program will have fled abusive circumstances, leaving most of their
clothing and belongings behind. While CCAA’s “Delivering Hope” program provides clients with clothing and some other basic items, Homefeathers will compliment this by focusing more on the recipients’ homes, providing additional home “comforts” and furnishings.
Recipients are accepted into the Homefeathers program through agency referral. CCAA assigns the clients to Homefeathers program facilitator, Designer Lorelie Noble. Lorelie then begins to work with each client in order to meet their individual needs.
A visit is then made to the client’s home, at which time Lorelie will be able to get to know them and assess their particular item needs. An inventory will be taken of what they already have. Lorelie then returns to the CCAA warehouse and draws from both her interior design and CCAA product-sponsored resources, to pull together the items for the particular project. These items are then brought to the client’s home and Homefeathers also will provide skilled trades for minor repairs when required.
In the interior design world, there is a surplus amount of goods and, in most households, there are many useful items that are no longer wanted or needed. You can now donate directly to “Homefeathers” knowing your items will go to people who desperately need them and would appreciate them in their new homes.
Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness is looking for program sponsorship for “Homefeathers” (see Sponsorship Levels). It is also appealing to the design industry for ongoing product support and sponsors to donate interior design goods (including furniture), and other decorating items including lamps, pillows, picture frames, rugs, etc. which will be given directly to people affected by abuse and who are needing to “feather a new nest”.
