Local nonprofit holding “Home Reimagined: A One-Day Home Makeover Event,” which will give complete home makeovers to 10 local families

Silver Spring, MD — May 1, 2024 — Tomorrow, May 2, A Wider Circle will embark on a transformative journey, redefining the meaning of home for 10 families living in Montgomery County, MD and Washington, DC through “Home Reimagined: A One-Day Home Makeover Event.”

During this groundbreaking event, volunteer teams from several local companies will work alongside expert interior designers and movers to provide complete home makeovers, creating havens of comfort and style for families in need. This event is made possible through the generous pro-bono support of our partners, ensuring that every corner of these homes is furnished with care and attention to detail.

Based in Silver Spring and with a focus on anti-poverty programming, A Wider Circle serves thousands of individuals annually through its programs that provide furniture and basic necessities, career counseling and workshops, and neighborhood-focused support. The organization also hosts thousands of volunteers annually.

“Home Reimagined is not just about transforming physical spaces. It’s about creating a sense of belonging and dignity for the 10 families we’re serving,” shared A Wider Circle’s Lara Gagrica. “With the help of our event sponsors who will also join us as volunteers to work in each home, we aim to demonstrate the power of community and the impact that a well-designed, welcoming home can have on our neighbors.”

A Wider Circle would like to thank the following sponsors for their support of Home Reimagined: Fannie Mae, NewRez, First Finish, Fowlkes Studio and Added Dimensions, CareFirst, Clark Construction, Coakley Williams Construction, Wellpoint, Anthony Wilder Design & Build, Capital Senior Solutions, Corcoran Caterers, Deloitte, and WC Smith.
