El Cajon, CA, USA - February 27, 2021 - East County Transitional Living Center is excited to announce that one of their partnering agencies, Humble Design, a nonprofit that changes lives and neighborhoods by furnishing homes of families, veterans, and individuals emerging from homelessness, will be giving back to ECTLC on March 5th.
Since Humble Design San Diego opened its doors in 2018, they have received almost 30 referrals from ECTLC. ECTLC is located in the heart of El Cajon, and is a charitable foundation dedicated to helping those in need. With the dedication of their volunteers, staff members, and partners, they strive to improve the lives of those experiencing homelessness who need help within the community.
ECTLC’s campus is a former motel which has been converted into a shelter for homeless families. Each family lives together in a small hotel room with a bathroom and shares a communal dining hall and chapel with all the other participants. They have created a youth center space dedicated for kids aged 10-17 to relax, hang out, play games, and just be kids – but didn’t have a budget to furnish it.
On March 5th, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Humble Design will be furnishing the area, creating flexibility, with each space having multiple uses and functions. The goal is to bring a relaxed and contemporary vibe for the teens. They will be creating a lounge zone, a gaming zone, and a homework zone. They will reveal the space at 3:00 pm - the reveals are always special and emotional.
ECTLC is grateful for the generous donations of goods and time from Humble Design and look forward to better serving their youth community in the shelter. To learn more about East County Transitional Living Center, visit the ECTLC website!
