Bringing people together for a cause is one of the things that Lynn Coit, President and Founder of Elsy Studios, does best. When Denver CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) reached out for help with their new space, Lynn used her new position as the President Elect of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Colorado Chapter to rally the design community and create something truly inspired and meaningful.

CASA was moving out of a traditional office space into a stately “Denver Square” home in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. As part of their mission to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in Denver Juvenile Court, CASA wanted to create a warm and inviting space for their advocates to meet with their appointed children – a place where everyone could feel safe, comfortable and free to be themselves. A place they could feel at home.

The house, built in the early 20th century, was in desperate need of some TLC. Lynn requested volunteers and invited ASID members to sign up for a room, and contribute their skills and talents where they could.

This project took a village, and it was incredible to watch the design community gather around such an important cause. Thanks to everyone’s hard work, these children now have a safe, home-like environment where they can feel supported, have a quiet place to study and experience normalcy.

Thank you to all the incredible people and companies that donated their time and products to create this home for CASA.
