At a loss for ideas as her birthday drew near, Lisa Robison realized what she really wanted was to help others. As an interior designer, she knew first hand the impact that good design can have on a person’s well being and sense of worth, and she wanted to give back to her community.
The mission of Dwell with Dignity, the non-profit she founded with friend and partner Kim Turner, is simple: to help families escape poverty and homelessness through design, one household at a time.
“If we can change a person’s surroundings, we can change their outlook on life,”said Robison. “Exposing children to a nurturing home environment can inspire a standard of living that will carry over to future generations. Exposing parents to this same environment will allow them to see the positive impact it has on their family, inspiring them to maintain a standard of living they can be proud of and thrive in.”
Dwell with Dignity relies on donors and volunteers to create soothing, inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty. For more on how to get involved with Dwell with Dignity, visit www.dwellwithdignity.com.
