The Warner Bros. Community Builders Program selected Family Promise of the Verdugos as one of four organizations to support for a makeover project. A team of Warner Bros. employees led by Norman Barnett have been focusing on giving our Family Promise Day Center a makeover that will provide our families with a sense of home and belonging.
The team added lighting fixtures and a curtain; painted the walls; and installed new cabinetry. Executive Director Albert Hernandez said “the new look has helped our families feel comfortable and at home.” The families, staff and volunteers have all commented on the new lighting in the various rooms which has allowed staff to utilize spaces for meetings which have always been dark in the past.
The Day Center plays “home” for up to 90 days for each family. We want the Center to truly feel like home to the families, especially the children, who are experiencing homelessness for the very first time. The Warner Bros. team has really captured the feeling and we are very thankful!
