Have you met the D.I.V.A.S.?
D.I.V.A.S. (Designing Interiors-Volunteers at your Service) is the volunteer arm of Houston Furniture Bank (HFB). Through their efforts they help transform the homes of HFB clients from bare bones into something homey & comfortable using mostly donated and gently-used items that are recreated, repurposed and redesigned. Periodically, D.I.V.A.S. work with area non-profit agencies to improve public and private areas.
D.I.V.A.S. newest project
Recently, D.I.V.A.S. completed a project with a client referred by one of HFB’s agency partners, Fort Bend County Behavioral Health Services. The D.I.V.A.S. volunteers helped transform a 4-bedroom 2-story house into a more functional and homey environment for a family of six (Mom and her five young daughters, ages 6, 5, 4, 2, and 1).
After a month of offsite planning and designing, a team of 13 D.I.V.A.S. worked their magic on the family’s home on a Saturday, while Mom and the girls enjoyed a day out at the waterpark. D.I.V.A.S. provided a complete one-day transformation of their home, creating much needed storage, functionality and beauty, truly turning their house into a home.
