A mom and her children were caught in a tough situation. After living in homeless shelters for more than a year, the family didn’t know where to turn. Thankfully, someone came to their rescue.
After a rough 12 months, Tiffany Clarke and her two daughters were forced to sleep in homeless shelters or the family’s vehicle. The mother wasn’t sure how to dig herself out of the hole. Then, she finally caught a break. Just in time. Tiffany was allowed subsidized housing, or low-income based rent.
The family moved in as soon as possible. A simple task since there were no beds, no dining table, and no lamps; the trio didn’t have anything. Tiffany could barely afford the rent, much less furniture. That didn’t seem to bother the girls. They were just happy to have four walls surrounding them and continued to spend nights cuddled together on the floor.
After a non-profit organization heard of the single mother’s story, they decided to investigate. Humble Design was a business that used donations from the community to decorate and furnish homes for struggling or recently homeless families. Tiffany and her daughters were about to receive the surprise of a lifetime.
Treger Strasbery, Humble Design’s founder, completely furnished the Clarke’s home while all three were away. The family was in awe of what the volunteers were able to accomplish while they were gone and were overcome with emotion.
“Oh my god! This is pretty, this is so beautiful,” Tiffany said. “I wasn’t even expecting anything this pretty.” The best of transformation? Tiffany and her daughters would sleep in beds after more than a year.
The family’s once bare walls were adorned with art while their empty dining room now housed a table.
Strasbery explained the concept that inspired the birth of the organization.
“It’s a lot of love, a lot of kindness, dignity and respect that’s offered to families that haven’t had a lot of kindness and dignity and respect in the last year,” she said.
