Joy Street Initiative

Creating spaces that support healing and growth

 Joy Street Initiative is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving lives through transforming spaces for other local Bay Area nonprofit organizations. We partner with our local community organizations that are on the front line helping those in need.


We believe restoring dignity and ownership in your living space is extremely important, especially when transitioning out of hardship or trauma. We believe beautiful spaces support positive attitudes and motivate us towards healing. We believe personalization and functionality provide emotional, physical, and visual support and give individuals a sense of ownership and pride.


 Our work benefits local Bay Area nonprofit organizations who support the disadvantage through, but not limited to, housing, advocacy assistance, and educational support, as well as individuals who have experienced hardship, violence, or trauma.


Joy Street Initiative (JSI) was started in 2018 by Kelly Finley, owner and principal designer of Joy Street Design (JSD), a full-service interior design firm in Oakland, CA. JSD creates custom, colorful and approachable interiors with an emphasis on providing unique and thoughtful solutions that reflect the client's personal style

JSD proudly donates full design time and at least 10% of all profits to Joy Street Initiative.
