Interior Designer's talents shaped a welcoming home for the community 

At PERSAD Center we are mourning the loss of friend and supporter David McAdams and send our heartfelt condolences to his husband and PERSAD board member Gene Welsh. David passed away suddenly on Saturday, July 2, 2016. David was the interior designer of PERSAD Center's facilities in Lawrenceville, which opened in March 2015. His sense of design, color and style helped create an amazing home for PERSAD Center and the people we serve. His interior design helped make a visible symbol of support and inclusion for the LGBTQ community. His talents and kindness were appreciated by all who knew him, and he will be missed greatly by the extended PERSAD family.
