We believe your surroundings can change your life. Design has a strong impact on emotional well being, physical health and social interactions.
One of our missions at Knock Out Abuse West is to redesign local area shelters so that every woman and child whose lives have been shattered by abuse, poverty and homelessness, can restart their lives in warm and welcoming spaces.
This year Knock Out Abuse West joins forces with Linda Weinstein of the ONE ROOM CHALLENGE to redesign an eight bedroom shelter in the San Fernando Valley in dire need of a makeover. The One Room Challenge is an online makeover event where designers/bloggers/influencers participate in a sponsored makeover. The One Room Challenge™, currently in it's thirteenth season, is a widely anticipated biannual event every April and October. Each round, twenty design bloggers take the challenge and transform a space in six weeks. Every Wednesday, the designers document their process while sharing their sources and professional advice over the six weekly posts.
This will be the very first event based entirely around a shelter.
Below are some pictures of the shelter we'll be making over.
