Seattle Chapter Project

 

IAHSP Community Worldwide Staging Service Week


Project:

For the second consecutive year, The Seattle IAHSP Chapter has selected Teen Hope (teenhopewa.org) as their Worldwide Staging Week benefactors. Over seven days, members of Seattle IAHSP Chapter transformed the staff area, kitchen and storage areas of Teen Hope.
Last year, the group staged the teen resident rooms, bringing new beds, paint and much-needed sprucing up to rooms that house at-risk teens as they work to rebuild their futures. This year, local ASP Stagers tackled the staff side of the facility, upgrading the kitchen area, storage and meeting space so that clothing donations, school supplies and other donated items can be easily collected and distributed to teens in need – many of whom arrive at Teen Hope with nothing more than the clothes on their backs.
The staff side had very different needs, as it primarily consists of offices and storage. The planning committee made a determination that the primary need for this project was organizing. The clothing donation closet, the laundry closets, the “unused staff bathroom storage,” as well as the main staff bathroom were all in need or organization. The staff bedroom, mediation room and the family/meeting room and kitchen were also in need of efficient storage and organization.

One our members is a member of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers) and was able to solicit two volunteers from NAPO to oversee some of the more demanding organizing needs. The help of these two women was invaluable!

In addition to all of the organizing, our group of motivated ASPs painted the kitchen, hallway and bathroom, as well as the kitchen and bathroom cabinets. The power of color was impressive!

Our donations committee was able to acquire two dining tables that the staff could use for regular meetings and presentations, a hide-a-bed sofa that could double for counseling sessions as well as a bed for the overnight staff. A lot of storage containers and shelving were donated and purchased with our donated funds. Art work was donated by one of our local affiliates.

We also had a few hard-working ASP’s who spent an entire day reorganizing TeenHope’s storage shed. Others donated a truck and labor taking unwanted items to a donation site and the local transfer station.

Many of our members helped behind the scenes, to include PR, food donations, and lots of planning. And finally, we staged to space with the finishing touches of new towels, bed linens, pillows and accessories.

We were so fortunate to work with such a great program. The Executive Director of TeenHope was there to help every day and even prepared breakfast and lunch for our hard-working ASPs!

It was truly a rewarding and inspiring project. And it is safe to say that everyone had fun!

News Article on our project:

" When Henry Delle Chiaie heard that area home stagers wanted to lend their expertise to Teen Hope -- the Shoreline emergency teen shelter where he is executive director -- he had two questions.

What is home staging?

What does that have to do with a shelter?

'After talking with them,' Delle Chiaie said, 'it was very clear we were in deep need of stagers.' "
