         One local group, the Alabama Chapter of the International Interior Design Association, found out what a blessing it was to give to Jessie's Place, our shelter for women & children in Birmingham.  The IIDA conducted a drive to benefit the homeless women and children we serve and came with a van-load of donations to help.

         The group made up of architects and interior design businesses known as the IIDA, joined forces to collect items for our shelter.  Ashley Handley, the president of IIDA said "They give women a second chance.  Sometimes life throws you a curve ball, and you want someone to help you... that's what Jessie's Place does."

         According to Dr. Malissa Smitha, the director of Jessie's Place, "The donations that come to Jessie's Place are just huge blessings to so many homeless children and homeless mothers.  Basically, it's the way we provide for Christmas.  It's a wonderful gift to families who would otherwise not have anything."
