Review for Special Spaces , Knoxville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became involved with Special Spaces a couple of years ago while in design school. School encouraged us to seek out and volunteer. I located Special Spaces and discovered that there was a child's room that needed a makeover in Nashville, TN. I was part of the makeover from the very beginning of the process to the reveal. I've since completed 6 rooms. I've volunteeed for other organizations but never met the families we were helping. At Special Spaces, we meet and interact with the family and the child getting to know them and they are so excited to have been chosen for a room makeover and see how many people come to volunteer. The room reveal is the best part of the day. To see their reaction of what was accomplished in one day and how much they love the new room is a very rewarding experience. Doing these room makeovers gives the child a place to retreat that makes them feel safe and comfortable. The response I hear the most is "my child doesn't want to leave their room" and that makes it all worthwhile.
