Act 2 Safe Choice Renovation – Update

Published on:

Many thanks to our 85 donors, and 10 suppliers for your generosity! We have recently completed our first (of 12) units for Act 2 Safe Choice.
We couldn’t have done this without you…. The woman who moved into the unit was moved to tears when she saw her new home.
Our mission is not just renovating spaces – It is to create a warm, inviting “home”, complete with thoughtful interior elements to inspire these women that positive change is possible.

Below are photos showing the transformation that your donations including ‘in kind donations’ helped to create.

A special shoutout goes to Jim Smith from Smithwood Builders, the general contractor, who masterfully coordinated all aspects of this project. Your dedication and expertise have been the driving force behind the success of this project.
We also want to extend a special thank you to Kyle Robertson from Kybe Electrical and Adam Joziak from Dove Painting for their generous donations of time and services. Your support has been invaluable.

In addition, we would like to recognize the dedicated staff at Synthesis Design who have donated not only their design and sourcing time but assembled furniture, made deliveries, cleaned, set up etc. You are the best!

We are grateful to our community/clients for getting involved and supporting this project. Thank you to the Seethram Family for allowing us to de-construct certain components from their home before their renovation, salvaging pieces for Act 2 with the help from the crew at Kennedy Construction.

We couldn’t have done this without the support of our suppliers who have been integral in making this dream a reality! Your support has enabled us to make a significant impact on a vital and necessary cause. Together, we’ve created a better home for those in need, and for that, we are truly grateful.

While it has taken more time and effort than first estimated, (sounds like a typical design project), there is a profound sense of satisfaction that goes along with supporting such a worthwhile cause.

Below is an outline of where your donations were spent:
