On September 20, 2022, Impact hosted an open house to show off the beautiful new basement of one of their Evanston properties, finished and upgraded by Designs for Dignity.
Earlier this year, Impact received a grant from Designs for Dignity, a Chicago-based organization that aims to transform nonprofit spaces through pro-bono designs services and in-kind donations through beautiful, functional design.
Over the past few months, Impact staff and volunteers worked alongside Designs for Dignity to finish the space. Now, the basement is a bright, welcoming space featuring a community room, waiting room, and therapy room. The upstairs will house families from Impact’s Family Supportive Housing Program.
