CBI and the Live Love Serve Foundation recently partnered to provide furniture for a new Drop-in Center created by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Piedmont Tri-County. NAMI Piedmont Tri-County was looking to create a space in their facility that would offer visitors and patients a safe, supportive and cozy environment. The vision for this space is that it is a place where individuals can participate in activities focused on fostering relationships and personal empowerment, while also providing access to entertainment, computer and digital art opportunities.
CBI and the Live Love Serve Foundation became aware of the opportunity when Connie Engelbrecht, Director of Client and Community Engagement at CBI, learned that the facility was in need of furniture that aligned with their vision. They were looking for soft, inviting chairs and couches, as well as a few tables and desks that would allow those dropping-in to work or chat comfortably. CBI worked with NAMI Piedmont Tri-County to narrow down the types of solutions that would meet their needs and provided an in-kind donation to the facility.
NAMI Piedmont Tri-County’s Drop-in Center will open this year, and CBI and the Live Love Serve Foundation are thrilled to have been part of the team to create a safe, comfortable space for all those who visit.
