BOCA RATON, FL – Place of Hope graciously received a donation from Rooms To Go to decorate the interior of a family cottage in its South County campus in partnership with International Materials Foundation.

The Genesis Cottage on the Leighan and David Rinker Campus has served 54 youth since inception and Place of Hope was thrilled to give it a refresh before a new family arrives. Thanks to the generosity of key Place of Hope supporters we were able to make much needed repairs and updates to this cottage that offers safe, affordable transitional and supportive housing for aged out foster youth, otherwise homeless youth and families and human trafficking survivors.

“This is the second year International Materials has partnered with Place of Hope and we could not be more thankful for their compassion for the homeless youth and moms in transition that this cottage serves,” said Charles Bender, Place of Hope Founding CEO. “Rooms To Go has been a faithful partner to our mission and we were impressed by their generous donation of new furniture for this cottage. We are so blessed by these key community partners that want to further the mission of Place of Hope.”

Rooms To Go supported this project by supplying all new beds and bedroom furniture for the cottage. The company provided new full-size beds, dressers, nightstands, and other bedroom essentials. “Rooms To Go has always felt a special affinity for organizations that help children,” said Janis Altshuler, Sr. Vice President at Rooms To Go. “We are delighted to partner with Place of Hope again this year and applaud their efforts in the Palm Beach County communities.”

Provision from International Materials Foundation’s grant allowed the Place of Hope team to make repairs and paint the cottage. International Materials staff also donated their time with fifteen volunteers who cleaned, decorated, and prepared this cottage to serve moms in transition. Tori Thomas with International Materials said, “Our foundation is a proud supporter of Place of Hope and everything they do here.”
