Enchanting Designers

I'm a believer in doing for others.  I believe we are to encourage one another, and give people a hand up if they need it.  We all have different gifts, and we can use those gives to serve.  That's why I admire the women behind Enchanted Makeovers so much.  From the founder, Terry Grahl, to her wonderfully supportive entourage of speakers, motivators, and workers, this organization is making a difference.

For Terry, it all started when her interior design business was asked to give a space in a women's shelter a makeover.  She had a personal epiphany while preparing for that project-- realizing the importance of transforming environments to help women transform their lives.

"The mission of Enchanted Makeovers is to transform shelters for women and children into heartwarming havens, it's the catalyst to help everyone’s dream come true."

Ultimately, Terry realized she had found her life's vocation.  She took a leap of faith and closed her client-based design studio.  She then founded Enchanted Makeovers, a non-profit company dedicated to serving homeless women and children by providing beautiful, comforting, and inspiring environments.
