Su Casa, our residential treatment facility, is being renovated. It's an all volunteer, completely pro bono project initiated by members of New York Metro Chapter of American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and supported by many local and national businesses.

From 2011-14, the New York Metro Chapter coordinated a pro bono design project to renovate Su Casa Residence, a facility that provides long-term treatment for those recovering from addiction.
Volunteers donated over $450K worth of design services and labor while collecting more than $160K in cash donations.
The project team used evidence-based design practices and sustainable materials in the renovation, finishing the project in December 2014. Co-chairs Theresa Seabaugh, Allied ASID, and Alma Nugent, ASID, led the team which also included Gretchen Reinheimer, Allied ASID; Vincent Taylor, ASID; and Jacqueline Hosford, ASID.
The ASID Medalist Award recognizes members and non-design professionals who have exhibited two of the following three criteria in their career: outstanding service to a Chapter or to ASID; significant contributions to the interior design profession; and/or significant contributions that enrich the human experience.
