Humble Design has come a long way from its humble beginnings in the garage of its co-founder, Treger Strasberg.
Strasberg got the idea for the non-profit after a co-worker and her children became homeless.
After some time in a shelter, the family found a house to rent. But they had almost no possessions. Strasberg recalls visiting the home and being shocked at how they had to live.
"(They made) little nests on the floor of where they were going to sleep with their coats and their clothing," she says, "and (they had) no furniture at all."
