BROWNWOOD, Texas - Today the Ark Shelter showed off their recently redecorated room in their Adopt-a-room program. The shelter is for abused men or women who need a safe place to stay. This program allows you to redecorate a room however you would like for one of their residents.
"Not only is this going to be really beneficial to our residents but it's fun," Volunteer and Program Coordinator, Mary Silver said.
She went on to say that she hoped to see more rooms adopted through the program. Silver says that seeing the drastic change before and after the redecorating is exciting. "It's just so much fun to step back when you see what it was like before and then see the new rooms, it's just exhilarating."
There are 7 rooms that still need to be redecorated. Kohler company has already committed in helping with this program.
"The rooms here can be depressing," said Program Director, Christie Tongate, "we want to give [the clients] a better experience and give them a cheerful place to live that feels like home."
