Hope and a Home
For months, dispatches were arriving at our headquarters in Connecticut from San Francisco—namely from Ronald McDonald House at Stanford—as the enormous undertaking of the building and decorating of the new RMHS neared completion, and the new home for those in need prepared to open its doors.
SFC&G, in partnership with the San Francisco Design Center (SFDC), has seen the project progress from the freezing day in early 2014 when Editor in Chief Alisa Carroll attended the groundbreaking, through the year of extraordinary design leadership by Geoffrey De Sousa and Elizabeth Martin (where did they find the time and the patience?) and culminate in a crescendo of photography—masses of which lit up the social media universe on its way to the 30 pages in this issue (see pages 74 to 103) and more on cottagesgardens.com/rmhstanford.
It was Rhonda Hirata of SFDC who brought us together and honored us all by asking us to get involved. The project is called “Where Hope has a Home.” Surely, with the likes of Rhonda in the world, we are all assured of hope and a home.
