EMNARI has been given the opportunity to work with a very special boy this year that lives in Billerica through the Room to Dream Foundation. This six year old is afflicted with a serious medical condition that limits his ability to move up and down the stairs in his home.
Currently, his bedroom is on the second floor and his family carries him up and down the stairs to reach his bedroom. He will be receiving surgery soon that will prohibit his use of stairs entirely.
His family wishes to create a special place for him to live on the first floor of the home where he will be capable of accessing his room in a wheelchair. It is to be a safe haven for him, where he can feel secure and calm while helping foster independence and learning.
He would like to be able to play in his room, which currently he does not, and he would like to be able to have guests in his room.
EMNARI will be designing and remodeling a bedroom to help create a healing and healthy environment for this boy. The project will be taking place between May and July.
If you are interested in becoming involved in this project and would like more information, please contact Kara Wilson at New England Design & Construction.

About Room to Dream:
The mission of the Room to Dream Foundation is to create healing environments in hospitals, communities, and homes for children and adolescents who are facing chronic illnesses. As they recuperate and recover, our hope is that their renovated spaces will improve their quality of life, promote strength, imagination, self-worth, and aid in their recovery processes.
The Room to Dream Foundation focuses its services on children and families living in low- and moderate-income urban and suburban areas. In order to complete each renovation, we purchase all of the furnishings and supplies. Every purchase is tailored to the specific needs of a child or family. Through a caring staff of professional and amateur artists, interior decorators, and volunteers, we design and transform living spaces that give children and adolescents room to dream of a healthier future.
