Thanks for the re-do!

Thanks to Quadra and Habitat for Humanity for the facelift on HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services’ Wyckoff Gardens Community Center.

Robert Sablic, chief operating officer at Quadra; Regina Mitchell, director at HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services Wyckoff Gardens Cornerstone Program; Brooke Rosenthal, vice president of Youth Development and Community Programs at HeartShare St. Vincent; Briana Fullwood, manager of Corporate Partnerships at Habitat for Humanity; Nicole Haworth, managing director at Quadra, and Nicole Bootz, designer at Quadra Designer were all on hand as HeartShare unveiled the renovated space made possible by Quadra and Habitat on on Dec. 11.

“Our Wyckoff Gardens Cornerstone Program is now freshly painted, and has two newly furnished classrooms, a computer room and lounge. It looks like a completely different space,” said Brooke Rosenthal.

The program, which opened last fall in Boerum Hill, offers after-school and summer camp options for those five and older.

“Thank you for creating a safe, beautiful space for all of us,” Rosenthal added.

Quadra is a New York-based furniture rental and staging company.

In addition to donating furniture, décor, mobile Swiftspace workstations, and tech enhancements Quadra partnered with non-profit arts organization Chashama to bring original art into the mix.
