In February, IKEA had their 7th annual “IKEA Life Improvement Co-Worker Challenge.” In Houston, the Center was named the winner of the challenge, which gave us the opportunity to receive a much-needed makeover to our nearly 40-year-old building!

Last Thursday and Friday, IKEA and the Center’s volunteers worked together to give the Center a beautiful makeover. IKEA renovated our lobby, family resource room and five speech therapy rooms! Local artist, Shawn Artis, also donated two pieces of his original artwork for the Center’s newly renovated lobby. We thank Artis for his continued support throughout the years, including his participation in the Center’s annual Via Colori Houston Street Painting Festival.

We would like to thank IKEA, all volunteers and Shawn Artis for the tremendous support, hard work and effort that was put in to renovate our beautiful Center!
