AGW Charity Project: Her Haven

As part of our continuing tradition of serving and giving back to the community, A.G. Williams is delighted to partner with Her Haven to provide transformations in the lives of deserving women. For a woman who is selected, this project involves a complete redesign and remodel of a significant space in her life, either in her home or office.

By renovating a room to fit the recipient’s life and goals, Her Haven seeks to inspire women “to live fuller, richer, more productive lives.” By partnering with the talents and resources of a number of community organizations, we are able to provide a professional quality living or work space that will enhance the life of the one who receives it.

“I was thrilled to see the strong support of members of our community at our Launch Celebration on May 17.  The look on Nordia and Elizabeth’s faces when they saw the design concepts presented by Fairfield University’s Interior Design students was truly priceless,” said Carey Dougherty, Founder & Executive Director at Her Haven. “Having the support of companies like AG Williams Painting Company is so critical to our mission of bringing a little piece of peace to women through a well designed space.  With their help and with the help of other corporate sponsors, Her Haven looks forward to ”˜designing a difference’ for the many deserving women in our communities who quietly serve.”

A.G. Williams is donating the professional craftsmanship for the first two Her Haven projects, which is valued at up to $2,500. Additional services in design and construction are being provided by Fairfield University’s Interior Design program and by Habitat for Humanity.

“At A.G. Williams we feel it is important to give back to the local community,” said Doug Kitchen, CT Account Representative. “Every home I go in seems to have an office for the man in the family. I think it’s about time we recognize that the women in our lives deserve and need a space of their own. The way “Her Haven” is honoring these ladies strikes a chord with me, and I’m thrilled AG Williams can have a part in it.”


Dedicated to giving back to our community, A.G. Williams sponsors numerous charitable events each year, including fundraising for ovarian and breast cancer support services, free home painting for deserving recipients and more.
