John Parvensky, the president of CCH, learnt that the hotel was for sale and he grabbed the opportunity to turn it into a homeless shelter.
The organisation was able to purchase the hotel by using funds from the city, state, and private organisations.
After renovation, the property was renamed Fusion Studios. People who stay there only pay 30% of their income or disability benefits every month.

So, when Rosemary Murithi's nephew Brian Mutugi lost his mother in 2005 at a tender age, a big chunk of his dreams wafted away into thin air.
Things got worse when he got into high school and became a laughing stock of fellow students because he had nowhere to invite them for group discussion when it was his turn.
Murithi stepped in and built a house for her nephew.
