I have been busy with a special project lately and I want to share it with you.
Recently I was contacted by Sarah Himan from the Quality of Life Foundation. They help disabled veteran’s and their families. From their site:
Our aid is tailored to each family’s unique situation. Common challenges include – emotional and physical fatigue, lack of adequate home health care, feelings of isolation and lack of resources to meet quality of life needs.
Sarah was looking for help for a veteran who’s house had gotten into disarray, because of her health issues and physical disabilities. The veteran is Rina. Rina and her caregiver, Jenny needed help to get their home organized so it would work for Rina.
I am happy to report that 10 organizers from the Washington DC chapter of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers) stepped in and volunteered their time service over two days to get Rina’s home organized. It was a great team effort and so much fun.
We have even had several members offer help above and beyond the initial request, including cabinet glides in her kitchen by Shelf Genie, sales assistance of some of her collectibles by Quinn’s Auction House, organizing of her estate paperwork by Organize Your Estate and finally some maintenance appointments with Balanced Spaces.
Thank you to all who helped Rina and Jenny obtain a more organized, functional home.
