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.
