Dear Friends of the Jenesse Center,
Several years ago, I took on a unique challenge. My goal was to completely remodel one of Jenesse Center’s transitional housing shelters. It is my belief that the spirits of many battered women have been so broken that they can only DREAM of living independently in a safe, warm and beautiful space free of the horrors of the past. Through living in an apartment that was designed with love and attention to detail that is reflective of modern day living, I believe these women and children will have an amazing opportunity to begin to live a reality that is possible and most importantly, begin to dream the dream for themselves.

I kicked off my project by funding two of the 15 remodels myself. The first apartment is a children’s space that I affectionately named NAHLA’S WORLD after my daughter. It’s a place where the children can go to obtain new clothing as needed, have parties, play dates, play games, read and have much needed art and psycho therapy. By honoring the children in this way, I believe it lays the foundation for healthy mental development and a belief that they are worthy far beyond their circumstance. The second apartment is for a family in need. I completely gutted the space adding new appliances and replaced the old out dated heating system for more energy efficient use. I would like to use the same basic model for each apartment to keep the consistency throughout the building.

I am looking for sponsors to help maintain this project.  As part of sponsorship, you will:

  • Receive a video of the complete remodel process
  • Receive a pictorial of before and after photos
  • Receive a grand reveal of the apartment with photo opportunities
