This month, LUCHA partnered with Humble Design Chicago, a non-profit organization that helps families transition to stable housing by providing furnishing and design services that transform simple living spaces into welcoming homes.
LUCHA Supportive Services Counselor Emma Epstein, whose role includes providing counseling and rental assistance to those affected by domestic and sexual violence, helped a client transition from an unstable living situation into a new apartment. Advocating for the promise of her client’s future in a stable home, Epstein connected her to Humble Design to help furnish and decorate the new space. Prior to the home makeover process, the space was nearly vacant, and the client was spending nights with her daughter on a mattress on the floor.
On the day of the home makeover, the client returned for the reveal of her transformed apartment and expressed tears of joy, exclaiming that she could not wait to host her family for a true housewarming gathering. Through LUCHA’s collaboration with Humble Design, the space is now a vibrant, beautiful home, featuring a king-sized bed for mom, a pink princess room for her daughter, a dining table for meals together, and even a betta fish, as per the daughter’s request.
LUCHA is honored to witness and participate in every client’s journey. Many congratulations to this family on their new home!
