Co-Founder, A Sense of Home
Georgie Smith is the co-founder of A Sense of Home, a non-profit that transforms the lives of former foster youth by helping them create their first ever homes. Georgie Smith is a filmmaker, chef, and designer with a passion for giving back. Georgie responded to a cry for help from a former foster youth after he saw one of her cooking and design videos on Georgie Smith HOME. Georgie and her co-founder, Melissa Goddard saw the impact they had on the young man and so they took the concept of A Sense of Home to experts in transition aged foster youth. With that guidance, Georgie and Melissa developed A Sense of Home into a sustainable program.
