Giving Back

Allstate Interiors contributes time and financial support to many worthy causes.  Fred Soward and his wife Shari are very active in all of these organizations.

We are a “Compassionate Revolutionary” supporter of The Joyful Hearts Foundation.  Joyful Hearts provides a multitude of services nationwide. Its mission is to transform society’s response to sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse, support survivors’ healing, and end this violence forever.

We also support the Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture (PSOT).

One of our team members at Allstate Interiors is on the advisory board of PSOT.  PSOT helps people who come to this country to escape the horrific treatment they have endured abroad. The Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture’s mission is to assist individuals and families subjected to torture and other human rights abuses to rebuild healthy, self-sufficient lives, and to contribute to global efforts to end torture.


Allstate contributes time and financial support to GEMS (Goats, Education, Medicine, Sustainability).  We go on mission trips to South Sudan where we have helped free slaves and help build wheelchairs for polio victims.  Fred Soward is on the board of GEMS.  Allstate Interiors is also a supporter of a program in South Sudan called “Learning at the Well”.  This program helps women learn to read while fetching water for the families.
