Windham County Safe Place recently held an open house to celebrate their move to a new space. Executive Director Alyssa Todd pointed out that they actually found their new space back in February of 2015, but the space needed a makeover. It took some time, effort and expense but the team was eager to make this new office the child-friendly space they always wanted. The new Center has a reception area, family room, interview room and offices for the team members as well as a large meeting space, and they still have room to spare. Alyssa said their landlord was helpful in renovating the space to accommodate the Center’s special needs, and with some help from some local businesses, a total transformation took place.
Pictured below is the interview room with the microphone strategically placed in the flower vase. The room also offers sound proofing on the walls to ensure privacy.
Aaron’s Furniture donated a sofa and love-seat for the family room and Sherwin-Williams provided paint and some supplies.
The River Gallery School in Brattleboro donated tons of beautiful artwork which is displayed throughout the Center.
Alyssa and the rest of the team are proud that they were able to create a bright, cheerful space that feels welcoming and comforting to the families and they look forward to growing in their new space.
