All proceeds from Design Appétit benefit Focus on Home, a not‐for‐profit, IRS recognized 501 (c) 3
organization. The purpose of Focus on Home is to help families integrate into a healthy family lifestyle.
We work closely with partnering agencies to identify clients in need and on their personal path to
improvement. Our clients are families who are currently living in sub‐standard environments. Once a
client has been referred to our program, we will work with them to create a personalized home
environment based on their specific needs. We will work with the community to repurpose gently used
furniture and housewares in the creation of the client’s home. Enabled with the help of
volunteers, Focus on Home will set up the new home environments for our clients; helping those
families put their energy, time and resources into creating a positive future. Through our
encouragement of volunteerism we are contributing to a stronger sense of community by helping and
serving others. Visit www.FocusOnHome.org to learn more.
