Message from Kelly

Hi, I’m Kelly Finley, founder of Joy Street Initiative. Since 2018, my mission has been transforming spaces into havens for healing and growth. Teaming up with Bay Area nonprofits, we make a positive impact on lives emerging from hardship, violence, or trauma. Joy Street Design, my interior design firm, is committed to this cause, contributing design time and 10% of profits. Beyond aesthetics, our focus is instilling a sense of ownership and dignity. Join us on this journey of purposeful design, making a difference one space at a time.


Your support can be the catalyst for change. Every donation, no matter how small, contributes to our mission of improving lives through transforming spaces for other local Bay Area nonprofit organizations.
