Change for Hope: Another Phase Completed!
Two years ago, in honor of our 20th anniversary, a number of designers in our community joined forces to plan a “facelift” for the interior of our building, so that people coming to take part in our cancer support groups and programs would feel even more welcome. We call the long-term project Change for Hope, and we are thrilled to show you the results of the latest phase!
At the helm of this exciting project is Jo-Ann Capelaci, Principal Designer of Colours & Concepts in Thousand Oaks. As Change for Hope Chairperson, Jo-Ann is overseeing an innovative collaboration of six designers embarking on a complete makeover of CSCVVSB’s facility, where thousands of people seek support and hope during their cancer journey.
We are very fortunate to own our own facility, through the incredible generosity of an anonymous donor, and have been providing our services to both participants and their caregivers in this building for more than twenty years.
The good fortune of owning our facility brings with it the on-going need for maintenance. Our building, built during the 1970’s, had not been refurbished since 1995.
Throughout this project, we have been truly grateful for the time, labor, and expertise that this group of amazing interior designers and decorators has generously donated:
Jo-Ann Capelaci, Colours & Concepts
Eileen Gould, Lifestyles Interior Design & Construction
Fifi Lippman, Interiors by Fifi
Jule Lucero, Jule Lucero Design
Sue Breitrose, Closet Factory
Additionally, these wonderful designers are helping to facilitate the donation of much of the furniture, flooring, and carpets from the following generous vendors:
J.C.’s Professional Painters, Inc.
Special thanks goes to the volunteers from our community and the group of volunteers from Baxter who helped us pack and unpack our building. We truly appreciate all of your hard work.
We hope you enjoy our Before and After photos, and hope you can come visit us soon and see the improvements in person!
