Family of eight gets home makeover

October 6, 2021

A Discovery House family of eight was surprised with a home makeover courtesy of our team at Discovery House and Stephen’s Backpack Society as part of the Four Seasons of Hope project where families in need are selected to receive furniture.

Mom and her seven children not only received the furniture, but had a personalized makeover done by the team of ten from Stephen's Backpack Society. The house was transformed from a place filled with empty rooms to a warm comfortable haven to call home. They were all so so excited- mom was speechless!

“It’s a new beginning for a great family who’s been through a lot of storms and this is their rainbow today,” said Nancy McPhee, the executive director for Stephen's Backpack Society.

“They’re going to come home, thinking they’re going to find beds and they’re going to have a brand new home,” she said.

Our team at Discovery House will work with mom and her children to ensure they have all the supports they need.
