Ashley Partners with a Sense of Home to Support a Homelessness Solution
Ashley recently completed the first stop on their “Home on Tour” Series across the United States, and they have partnered with a local Los Angeles organization, A Sense of Home, to donate over $30,000 in products to help with the solution to homelessness in the Los Angeles area.
A Sense of Home works to prevent homelessness by providing first-time homes for youth aging out of foster care using donated furniture and household goods.
Their organization has implemented a one-of-a-kind and tried-and-true model with a perfect track record of success. All of their recipients have maintained housing stability and improved their outcomes more than peers who were unable to receive assistance from their services.
Among the beneficiaries, these young people reported feeling prepared to face life’s challenges and optimistic about their future.
“ASOH is thrilled with the Ashley donation as it will contribute to the creation of five inspired homes and change the lives of up to ten young people,” said Georgie Smith, Founder and CEO.
“We are thrilled with our partnership with Ashley and look forward to our continued work together in improving outcomes for youth aging out of foster care.”
Ashley hosted guests on March 25th at Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall in Los Angeles, where they transformed this iconic venue into an immersive experience for over 2,000 attendees.
The space was furnished with top product introductions to inspire guests to revamp and re-energize their favorite spaces, complete with product vignettes and unique brand experiences.
All of the furniture on display at this event will be used by A Sense of Home to furnish living spaces and homes for those seeking assistance from their organization.
What started as a random act of kindness has evolved into a community larger than the founders could have imagined. Over 1,500 former foster youth and children have been helped, and over 700 homes have been built.
A Sense of Home envisions a home full of hope, dignity, and love, a world in which furniture and appliances are never thrown away but are always given a second chance.
“Ashley is grateful to be a part of this vision and partner with A Sense of Home to help positively impact the lives of youth in the Los Angeles community,” said Kelly Davis, Ashley’s Senior Director of Marketing Strategy.
“We are confident that this furniture donation will help continue the success in all that ASOH is doing in their community!”
