The room of their choice includes furniture, artwork, home décor and small comforts of home from recycled, repurposed and refashioned items that are unique and special. New items are used as an alternative.
Room In Our Hearts identifies and helps people struggling to have a home again after a crisis by redecorating one room. The sense of having one space finished and ready for relaxation and enjoyment can positively impact feelings of grief and trauma and provide a renewed spirit.
