WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 30, 2013) — N Street Village today unveiled a full kitchen renovation project provided by DIY Network at Luther Place Night Shelter, a transitional housing facility in Northwest Washington, DC for 31 women experiencing homelessness. The new facility was laid out by celebrity designer Alison Victoria, host of DIY’s Kitchen Crashers, to provide a modern and efficient kitchen to serve some of the district’s most vulnerable women.
The outdated and heavily used kitchen at Luther Place Night Shelter had not been updated in 20 years, according to Schroeder Stribling, Executive Director of N Street Village, which operates the night shelter across the street from its main facility. The renovation, funded by DIY Network’s parent company, Scripps Networks Interactive, includes new appliances, storage space and a more efficient layout, with the kitchen to be completed by the end of the week.
