Honeycomb Gives Back is an initiative centered around giving back to the community of the Central Coast. 

This initiative began in 2019 when owner and principal designer of Honeycomb Home Design, Ariana Lovato, designed and coordinated a full room makeover for her client’s son with cerebral palsy. (Check out the reveal photos here). 

Through donated labor and design and community and industry-raised funds, Honeycomb Gives Back was able to give a local family bedroom makeovers for their children. Through new furniture, window treatments, and personal touches Luke and Grace had a whole new space to call their own!

Overwhelmed with the support, Honeycomb has decided to continue the Gives Back initiative for additional local families. In 2023 Honeycomb Gives Back is collaborating with industry volunteers to give the Perez family bedroom makeovers for their daughters.

Honeycomb Gives Back met the Perez Family through Jack’s Helping Hand, a local non-profit that provides assistance to families with special needs and cancer. The design team at Honeycomb is so excited to start collaborating and bring the Perez family’s vision to life!

Perez Family Story


In 2019 Cassy suffered a stroke in 2019 and was diagnosed with an incurable brain disease called Moyamoya. Gabby was a full-time student at the time, and her husband was the only one working. This was a tough time for their family, and Sergio had to miss work to be by their side for appointments, surgeries, and hospital stays.

The lack of income caused their bills to add up, and they struggled financially. During Cassy’s one-month hospital stay, they met many people going through the same situation, and that’s when a friend mentioned Jack’s Helping Hand to Gabby.

She began the process of being part of this organization. They supported the Perez family during these difficult times and assisted with much of the financial burden of an unexpected illness.

For Gabby’s senior year of college, she completed her internship at Jack’s Helping Hand. After Gabby graduated, she spent several years volunteering with the organization, and now she is an interpreter to support Spanish-speaking families.

She is very grateful not only to receive support and assistance from Jack’s Helping Hand and Honeycomb Gives Back, but also to be able to help others in need through her own work.

Honeycomb had the privilege of visiting the Perez family at their home and getting to know their daughters, Cassy and Zuhaily.
