Budget Blinds and sister company Tailored Living, part of the Home Franchise Concepts family of brands, believe in being actively involved in giving back to the community. In the spirit of the holidays, we would like to highlight two franchises that have made a difference in their communities!

Budget Blinds Serving North Spokane
Budget Blinds of North Spokane is owned and operated by Brian and Teri Fleisher. Recently, the team donated and installed several blinds in the Children’s Center at Anna Ogden Hall. Established in 1971, Anna Ogden Hall serves as a home to women and their children who are pursuing recovery from alcohol addictions, recovery from cocaine abuse, and other crisis situations in the Spokane, WA area. Their Children’s Center provides a positive atmosphere where the kids of these women can convene, socialize and play. It was in need of new window coverings and the team at Budget Blinds serving North Spokane was happy to lend a much needed helping hand.

“As soon as we heard about Anna Ogden Hall’s need for renovations, we were more than happy to jump on board and donate blinds,” said Teri Fleisher co-owner of Budget Blinds serving North Spokane. “We are all connected to each other in some way and helping your community is a way to ensure that we all move forward together.”

Tailored Living Serving Northern Virginia
Tailored Living of Northern Virginia is owned and operated by Todd and Juliana Carter. In 2012, they launched the Tailored Living Cares program that takes clothing donations from their clients and transports them to Women Giving Back, a program that provides free clothing to women and children in Northern Virginia homeless shelters. It’s a win-win situation because not only is Tailored Living helping its clients organize and declutter their closets, they are also helping those less fortunate.

“We started the Tailored Living Cares program because giving back to the local community has always been a priority for us,” said Juliana Carter, co-owner of Tailored Living serving Northern Virginia. “Receiving excess clothing from our clients and donating it to Women Giving Back has been a fulfilling experience and it makes us feel like we are doing our part in helping those in need.”
