WorldLegacy Creates Extreme Makeover of HomeStart Facility for Homeless Women and Children
A residential facility for homeless women and children will be getting an extreme makeover by WorldLegacy’s NC147 leadership team. In only two days, the facility will get an upgraded kitchen, children’s playroom and pamper day for the residents.

HomeStart Residential Facility for Homeless Women and Children in Chapel Hill, NC is receiving a complete transformation of their kitchen and playroom. NC 147 leadership team is creating an extreme makeover of several rooms in the facility and a day of pampering and fun for the women and children. The members of the NC 147 Leadership Team from the WorldLegacy in Chapel Hill, NC envision a world in which every human being feels worthy and appreciated by creating this project and transforming the facility.
This extreme makeover project is the culmination of WorldLegacy’s three-month leadership development program. This project will vastly improve and beautify a kitchen and playroom in the facility. It will provide the HomeStart facility with new dishwashers, an electric cook top, new counter tops, and general repairs. The playroom will be painted and will be furnished with new toys, games, tables, chairs, lamps, a play mat and storage containers. A spa day will be created for the women and children to have them own their beauty and worth. This day will be provided by massage therapists, beauticians, nail technicians and performers.
What makes this project unique is that the WorldLegacy Leadership team must design the project from start to finish, cannot use any of their own money, must involve the community to do 75% of the work and also have it complete in a two days!
WorldLegacy focuses on projects that benefit many different domains such as family, animals, environment and the elderly. NC 147 has chosen to leave a legacy in the domain of families. Being part of a loving family can provide feelings of worth and appreciation and give both parents and children a sense of purpose and belonging. Our intention is that the families that currently live at Homestart get that they matter and can live this fully and pass it on to the community and world.
The NC 147 Leadership team requests your help to make this project possible the weekend starting Saturday February 8, 2014 extending through Sunday February 9, 2014. We will start each workday at 8:00 am at 2505 Homestead Rd, Chapel Hill, NC. Everyone is invited to come out, make a difference, and make this vision become a reality. This project will send a powerful message to these women and children that they matter are loved and are valued. We will be celebrating the completion of the project with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sunday, February 9 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm.
