Los Angeles Home Staging – Charity Staging Event – West LA Chapter IAHSP – International Association of Home Staging Professionals
September 16, 2010
Professional Los Angeles home stagers and members of West Los Angeles IAHSP having helped to stage the main home at Richstone Family Center the year before, West Los Angeles Chapter IAHSP – International Association of Home Staging Professionals, Members and Affiliates joined together again this year in a collaborative effort for our Annual Charity Event. IAHSP Professional Stagers offered services and donations for our World Wide Service Staging Week on Saturday, September 11, 2010 to stage the Advanced home for Richstone Family Center in Torrance, CA. The Center is home for emancipated teens & young adult women as they transition from foster care into society with a home, education and job. (Photos of the staging below)
We collected donations from Cort Furniture Rental as well as Home Depot. IAHSP members also donated their time, money and needed items to make this staging for charity event a success.
A note from the President of the West LA Chapter IAHSP:
“Just another Thank You to everyone involved in this year’s WWSSW Event. It was another huge success and the girls at Richstone Family Center as well as the management staff there are very pleased with our work and donations. … I think it is rather incredible how we can take a very dreary and heavily used shelter/home and turn it into a showcase. During our project, I happened to go visit the home we did last year (next door) with some of the Richstone board members and I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the other house was. It still looked like the day we staged it…. gorgeous. So it appears the girls really are taking pride in what we are doing for them.
I have included a copy of an email below from Valerie, the house manager, about some comments from the girls. It’s a very heartwarming thing to do this for this organization and it’s even more to have them appreciate the hard work that all of us provided. A sincere thank you to everyone involved. The many months of planning / work is greatly appreciated.”
Dan Keating (President, IAHSP West LA Chapter)
