Homelessness, Interior Design and Ford: What’s the Connection?

In Detroit, Michigan, homelessness is a big problem. The majority of homeless individuals are single mothers with kids to support. When the bills come due and there isn’t enough to cover the mortgage or rent, it’s all too easy to fall behind.

When Treger Strasberg started her organization, Humble Design, she envisioned designers creating houses that were true homes. The nonprofit collects donated household goods and helps these families in transition to get a fresh start, and new hope.

In fact, only one percent of families working with Humble Design return to homelessness, whereas 50 percent of those without the nonprofit’s help do.

Those are some pretty powerful statistics and a pretty impressive program! Here at Paramount Ford, we hope you’ll stop in to chat about this or any of Ford’s other “Going Further,” stories. We’re conveniently located here in Valdese, North Carolina.

We offer competitive finance options and our friendly staff is always happy to answer your questions.
