BALTIMORE - April 20, 2022 - PRLog -- On May 7th-8th Design Heals Non-Profit will be partnering with the Pastor Sandy Johnson Legacy Foundation for the Annual Mother's Day Cease Fire Weekend in Baltimore City. Design Heals will be honoring two Mothers that have lost a child to gun violence or incarceration with a home makeover by donating and styling furniture & decor in a room of their choice. Design Heals Founder, Tiffany Parker has shared some information about Design Heals and the upcoming project.

Why Was Design Heals Founded? "Design Heals is a non-profit I started in 2018. It was initially founded out of frustration with the amount of waste and
unusable furniture inventory produced by my staging and design business. Later, I paired our excess inventory with my desire to be more intentional about using the business to serve the community. Furniture waste isn't a phenomenon limited to the staging and interior design industry, it's not uncommon to see sofas and old furniture piled up on the side of the road. Through our community service, we have come to understand the life changing power of having a dining table to eat at with your children, a comfortable sofa to relax on after a hard day of work or a dresser to store your clothes. As designers, we truly understand  the power of an environment to improve mood and well-being. Our mission  with Design Heals is to use our excess furniture and design abilities to  improve the lives of others. Since inception, Design Heals has partnered with organizations to furnish the homes of refugees, domestic violence  survivors that have relocated and families/individuals in need, foster children and a homeless shelter".

Why Did You Choose This Specific Population? "Like everyone else, I'm astounded and concerned with the level of  violence in our cities. In 2021, Baltimore City suffered 337 homicides. We have served many different populations through Design Heals since its inception. This year, my team and I decided to serve mothers that have lost their children to gun violence and incarceration in Baltimore City.  Behind the names of the murdered are human beings with mothers and families that have been left behind to mourn them. As Mother's Day  approaches, we want to remind these mothers that have experienced this devastating loss, that they deserve to be continuously celebrated."

How Can the Community Get Involved in the Mother's Day Cease Fire Weekend? The Cease Fire Weekend will be taking place in Baltimore City from  Saturday May 7th-May 8th.
