As the grand opening of The Ebby House at Juliette Fowler Communities approaches, the good folks at Dwell With Dignity are busy making sure the home will be properly decorated. The photo above is just one of the pieces of art Dwell With Dignity’s talented volunteers have been busy creating for the home.
Dwell with Dignity is a nonprofit group of interior designers and volunteers dedicated to creating soothing, inspiring homes for those who are struggling. At the core of their being is the belief that if they can change a person’s surroundings, they can change that person’s outlook on life. We couldn’t agree more.
The Ebby House, which is scheduled to open May 21, will be a community designed to prepare young women who have aged out of the foster-care system for a successful future. The solution-based program will serve up to 16 women at a time. The young women will live in the residential home on the Fowler grounds under the guidance of a house mom for 12 to 24 months and will be mentored in life skills, communication, computer skills, career guidance, opportunities for education beyond high school/GED, job training and volunteerism.
The Ebby House is named in honor of Ebby Halliday Realtors’ Founder and Chairman of the Board Ebby Halliday, who has worked tirelessly for more than 70 years to provide economic opportunities and assistance for others.
