A Place Like HOME


The surroundings we live in have a strong impact on our emotional well being, physical health and social interactions. Environments that promote well being have an effect on our mood, learning, and productivity, yet the neediest in our society don't have access to this.
One of our main missions at Knock Out Abuse West is to help empower women and families whose have been been shattered by abuse, poverty and homelessness by creating environments where they can find strength, comfort and inspiration to rebuild their lives. 

With our program A Place Like HOME, professional interior designers and trades people in the Los Angeles area we give domestic violence shelters and survivors in newly independent housing resources and furniture to create beautiful living spaces.
