8 interior designers joined forces under one roof to decorate The Teen Project P.A.D. Drop in Center located in Venice Beach. The space will be transformed into a resource center for homeless teens. The Teen Project’s goal is to get these teens back to safe homes or transitional housing and get them back on our their feet. Venice Beach is home to hundreds of throw away and runaway youth and The Teen Project is driven to make a difference. While many social services organizations keep homeless kids in Venice by providing food and services for them there, The Teen Project will take it one step further and finishing the job by restoring their lives.
The project was a month long process and will open to the teens February 13. 2012.

Hello, and welcome!
I am very excited to announce I will be working as the lead designer on a new Teen Project located in Venice. The owner Lauri Burns (who is such an amazing woman and her story is incredible *check out the website for her journey in life) is venturing into her second Teen Project facility in Venice Beach.
The facility will be a drop in center for teens to find a meal, get some shelter for a few hours, meet with a therapist or find a place to sleep for the night. There are no bedrooms or sleep areas in the space. Only lounge areas, a kitchen, computer stations, reception and a therapy room.
The space is incredible and its one big empty white box right now that we will transform into an amazing new teen center for these kids to enjoy. Please contact Lauri at The Teen Project for press and media questions, pictures and more information on her organization.
Thank you for your time and please feel free to post this on your blog, tweet or Facebook the info.
