KBBonline.com: Turning a House into a Home
According to a 2016 study done by the National Alliance to End Homelessness, 549,928 people are homeless on any given night in the U.S. Of that number, 194,716 were people in families. A housing program called Naomi’s Way, operated by Catholic Charities Diocese of Metuchen (CCDOM), is seeking to change that.
Formerly a transitional housing program for single women with children who were homeless, CCDOM will reopen Naomi’s Way as permanent housing for families in need.
Several manufacturers teamed together to make that happen, led by American Standard, part of LIXIL. The company provided faucets and fixtures for all bathrooms and kitchens in the 12 units and covered all the bathroom remodeling costs.
KBB spoke with Jeannette Long, vice president of marketing communications, LIXIL Americas, to find out more about the redesign.
