New Bright Space® Opens in New York City

February 25, 2019

We are excited to announce the opening of a new Bright Space® at the Regent Family Residence in New York City. Regent Family Residence is operated by Volunteers of America and serves 130 homeless families. Bright Horizons client SOM, a multinational design firm, funded the transformation and thanks to their sponsorship, we were able to create two rooms: one for preschoolers and one for teens.

This heartwarming video takes you inside the Bright Space as the children see it for the first time.

Thank you to everyone from SOM who donated their time and design talents, and to the Bright Horizons volunteers who helped create the Bright Space. A special thanks to Regional Manager Michelle Chiaro who worked with the agency, SOM and Bright Horizons to make this space a reality.
