IFDA Community Service Award

The IFDA recognized Venegas and Company with the Community Service Award for 2012 for our work at the Franciscan Hospital for Children, CBAT unit.

” This is the most important and rewarding kitchen we have ever designed”, Says Venegas. “The CBAT unit cares for children who have suffered serious traumas and this new kitchen makes their time in the CBAT unit feel a little more like home.”

Venegas and Company was offered an opportunity to give to the community! We were contacted by Alica Edy, Program Manager for the CBAT Unit at the Franciscan Hospital for Children in Brighton. This not-for-profit hospital needed a new kitchen and were looking for help. CBAT stands for Community Based Acute Treatment Program; it is a residential program that houses up to 20 children at a time, 24 hours a day, to rehabilitate them from serious behavior traumas. The unit is run by professionals, but relies heavily on the work of volunteers and financial contributions.

We were beyond excited to help and contribute to this amazing local program. We signed on immediately and committed to designing and building these deserving children a new kitchen!

We learned first-hand how generous and wonderful the Boston Design Community really is. With very little convincing on our part, our industry colleagues generously pitched in for these children.

Removing all traces of the existing kitchen we were able to redesign the entire space. The entry way was relocated to the dining area which enabled us to design a large U-shaped kitchen with an ample peninsula to divide the cooking area from the dining area and enable group cooking activities. We color coded the counters, areas requiring adult supervision are grey, and the self serve area in green. The children will tell you “Green means go”. They know they can get a drink, wash their hands, or get a napkin – all activities that instill self esteem.

The kitchen is safe, functional and engaging. More importantly it is a daily reminder to the children that they are important and deserving of such a “cool” place. The new kitchen is a source of pride for these children, and makes the CBAT unit feeling a little more like Home.

Thank you to all of Co-Contributors, the IFDA for recognizing this wonderful project and a big thank you to the Franciscan Hospital for Children – we truly enjoyed working with you all!
