Kreative Ways & Solutions, LLC is happy to announce the Unity Health Care Key Corner redesign project at their Minnesota Avenue Clinic in Washington, DC. KWS believes that “by changing the color of one’s surroundings, we can make a positive change in one’s life!” The project is funded by the DC Commission of Arts through the East of the River Grant.
Unity Health Care, Inc. (Unity) was founded in 1985 as Health Care for the Homeless Project (HCHP) providing primary health care services to homeless individuals and families that resided in local emergency shelters or on the streets of the District of Columbia. With a patient population that is plagued by low literacy, the promotion of literacy has become an important part of standard primary care, enabling children to grow up with books and a love of reading. Unity’s goal is to increase literacy among children during the critical literacy skills acquisition years of six months to five years. Through a partnership with Reach Out and Read of Metro DC, Unity has developed the Key Corner Project. The Key Corner Project promotes early literacy by bringing new books and advice about the importance of reading aloud into the pediatric exam room, unlocking the door to reading success.
To support the Key Corner project Kreative Ways along with local and noted artist Stan Squirewell collaboratively created a mural that celebrates the medical profession at the Unity Health Care clinic at Minnesota Avenue Clinic. The lead designer Felipe Bravo under Kreative Ways & Solutions, LLC are busily putting together a design plan which will consist of new furnishings, murals and accent walls.
The project is considered Kreative Ways & Solutions, LLC signature community design advocacy project is in the design implementation phase and a grand opening will be scheduled shortly.
