http://gowstakeout.com/2010/11/17/stir-fried-chicken-with-leeks/img_2338-2/ ROOMS OF HOPE is a 501(c) non-profit organization serving 9 counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area. Prigen Rooms of Hope gives back a little bit of control to sick children who often lose their say in daily activities, including going to school or having play dates because of their depressed immune systems and need for medical attention. Usually, they can no longer participate in sports or other extracurricular activities. Daily routines go from being “normal” to now being all about hospital visits or being at home while the rest of world moves forward without them. But we bring something wonderful to look forward to and give each child their voice. This gift goes on well beyond their amazing reveal of their dream space. While at home, this is their place of inspiration, healing and solace.
In essence, we create rooms that matter for children with a serious illness during a time when life is anything but predictable. Each child is paired up with a project manager and interior designer who listens to that child’s dreams and aspirations for their room, and together, they design a space that meets not only their immediate functional, storage, and medical needs, but also allows that child to begin the process of healing and dreaming about tomorrow….
Along with a ROOMS OF HOPE Project Manager and Interior Designer, comes construction specialists including licensed contractors and electricians, as well as muralists, artisans, painters, seamstresses and dedicated volunteers with one focus: Bringing hope and joy while creating spaces that matter!
