Meramec Interior Design Club Gains Opportunity to Help Community

July 24, 2008

Students in the Interior Design Club at St. Louis Community College-Meramec worked with Haven of Grace to create bright, happy rooms for needy families.

Haven of Grace is a residential and aftercare program that provides a safe, nurturing and educational environment for homeless, pregnant women by focusing time and resources on mothers and children as they become families and establish their lives together in the community.

Design professors Erin LeClerc and Jenny Manganaro guided the students to design a fun, playful space with child-friendly furniture for a young mother with two children.

"The entire apartment was designed by the students," LeClerc said. "They worked to get all items donated by local vendors. The items we could not get donated were purchased through funds from the Student Club and a few fundraisers."
