I work at a community bank that believes in giving back year round. With my fellow ladies at work we formed a group that helps various non-profits every month - but I can say without a doubt the work we did for the Aurora House meant the most to me. The Aurora House works to get homeless women off the street, into safe housing, and back on their feet. They come from all walks of life, with kids, addictions, doubts - but and each and everyone of them is cared for when they walk through the Aurora House doors.
The Aurora house is located in a beautiful old historic home and with an emphasis on 'old' - that's where I came in. After touring the house I rallied my coworkers to come together and provide some needed updates one of the rooms that could use a little love and inspiration to the woman who dwelled within.
Over a single day in March, a group of us completely restored the room, right from the paint on the wall to the pillows on the bed. We wanted to create a positive space where the woman occupying it could feel at home. We donated all of the supplies and were happy to pitch in a hard days work.
This was especially meaningful to me because our efforts directly helped a woman who was just like me, but whose path had lead her to rough times. Through the love and support of those gathered to work, we were able to lift her spirit and help her on the path to achieve greater things.
The photo attached is her room after we restored it!
