Design For A Difference

Design for a Difference (DFAD) is a community-driven movement that brings socially conscious flooring showrooms together with interior designers to makeover much-needed spaces at non-profits. This year INTERSOURCE, Inc. selected Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ) as our Minneapolis makeover recipient. We believe the work NAZ does is crucial to closing the achievement gap and ending generational poverty in the North Minneapolis community.  

NAZ has a growing team and needs a functional space to keep staff motivated and productive. This redesign will not only improve the productivity of staff but will also give them a place where they feel valued and appreciated. 

The redesigned NAZ offices will provide staff and families with COVID-appropriate private workspaces and open areas for collaboration. This makeover will offer the 24 dedicated Family Achievement Coaches and the staff who work with our collaborative of 36 partners a space that matches the mission.
