The Family Place is the Dallas area's leading organization working to empower victims of violence and advocating social change to put a stop to family violence. They provide assistance and services to over 10,000 people a year. They continue to grow their facilities and we were happy to be able to "serve" them and their families as they opened a new building in Dallas. With the generosity of several of our amazing artists we were able to fill the walls of their new "home" hoping to bring some joy and beauty to families who desperately need it.

For those of you that aren't familiar with The Family Place, they work to renew safety and hope for those affected by family violence. They provide both safe housing and counseling services to empower victims and develop independence. Through their efforts, they are creating social chance and making an immense difference in the community.

What a week! Our friends at Collins Interiors traveled to the south of Uganda to volunteer and help make a difference in a local school. They quickly realized that the children would be making a big impact on their lives. 


An amazing client of Collins Interiors started the KamuKama Foundation. The goal of the foundation is to grow and improve the Victory School in Bwindi. This school provides education for the most needy and vulnerable kids in that area. Without this school, these children would not have a foundation for a different life. The Collins Interiors ladies went to be with the students, help them write letters back to their USA sponsors and encourage the teachers.


The Collins Interiors gang mentioned that the children in Bwindi have close to nothing but are extremely happy. They help each other and are so patient with one another. They love each other well. Their music and sounds were so beautiful, and their precious voices made them cry.

Our friends even had the opportunity to join the families at church, and the congregation without fail put something in the Sunday offering – even when they had so little to give. They said it was a beautiful thing to see them place their coins in the offering basket. One person didn't have anything to bring except a watermelon from her garden.

Once the nursery students graduate, they hope to move onto being sponsored at a secondary school (middle school). The mission of the KamuKama Foundation is to continue their education beyond just the Victory School. If you would like to help and donate to the children of Bwindi, you can visit the KamuKama Foundation website at www.victoryschooluganda.org


We are excited about the growth of the KamuKama Foundation and are looking forward to seeing where it will take the children of Bwindi!
