Home Improvement Happenings

And AWAY WE GO!!! The 7th year of the LifeWorks Home Improvement Challenge (HIC) is officially well on its way with 4 corporate sponsors already in place!  Bazaarvoice and CLS Partners with Austin Assets Management are both returning for a second year, New York Life signed on for their third year and H-E-B is back for an amazing 5th time!! And, of course, we must give props to the LifeWorks Board of Governors who will be rolling up their sleeves for the 7th year straight.  We are also thrilled to have Red Earth Designs returning for a second year and our newest designer to HIC, C2 Interiors!! Cannot wait to see what amazing ideas you and your teams come up with!

For those who may not be familiar, HIC is an event taking place Friday, September 23rd at the LifeWorks Supportive Housing Program (SHP) where teams, consisting of corporate sponsors and local interior designers, donate their, time, energy, resources, money, heart and souls for a one day challenge that quite literally changes the lives of 8 of our SHP clients currently in the program. Think Extreme Home Make-Over, except the teams only have from 8am – 4pm to take the designs they have spent the previous six weeks planning for and translate them into reality.  

Absolutely the BEST day of the year for anyone who has ever been able to witness one of the reveals.  Seriously, bring your tissues and get ready to be overwhelmed by the whole experience.

We are so excited to be working with all of our teams this year.  We still have room for 3 more teams and several more designers. If you’re interested, email heather.newby@lifeworksaustin.org for more details.
