Domestic violence is more common than you think, and the 'Shelter for Help in Emergency' has been a vital part of fighting to end abuse for 35 years. This month they are hosting Design House to help raise money for their cause.
Their model house in Farmington has been completely remodeled by interior designers and is holding tours through May 18th. This is to help raise money toward their goal to end domestic violence throughout Charlottesville. Cheryl Jarvis, an interior designer was more than welcome to be a part of Design House.
'"That we take our gifts and our abilities and we give it back to help the community; because I think that’s what it’s all about. I love interior design, but if there’s any way I can share back a little bit of what I have and I can share my talents, what a great way to do that."
Each room of the house has a completely different designer, and even the yard has attention to detail.
This house is what the shelter uses to represent a peaceful and welcoming home, one that showcases a life free from violence.
