Foster Youth Community Hair Care Event 12/11/22
Our first Crowns and Cuts hair-care event took place in 2019, with 60 plus children in attendance. The children received several services including: hair washing/conditioning, braided styles, styling, haircuts, along with overall general maintenance tips. The event was completely booked, and several children without appointments were also able to receive services. While Crowns and Cuts was initially a one-time event, the turnout and response made it clear that the event was a necessity for the community, especially this particular demographic. As a result, we were asked to host another event a few months later.
The second Crowns and Cuts event was also a success. Unfortunately, as we were putting together our May 2020 event the pandemic hit and all activities and events were put on hold. In that downtime Congress along with several States implemented and passed the new " Crown Act" legislation, banning natural hair discrimination in the workplace and schools. The passing of the Crown Act was significant, it only validated what we already knew. Despite the pandemic delaying our event, the efforts to expand our reach and resources were fueled even more. Our Society as a whole is greater when children are equipped with hope, the self esteem to lead and confidence to achieve. Now that we have returned to some sense of normalcy, we are excited for the next event scheduled for December 2022.
Your support will help with our upcoming Foster Youth "Crowns and Cuts" Hair Care Event. We seek financial contributions to cover the cost for barbers, stylists, assistants, venue (venue accessories), swag bags (containing home hair-care maintenance and other goodies), food, entertainment, maintenance, & administration. We hope to reach our goal; additional funding will go toward future workshops and events.
