Several times a year, we do pop up make over booths in Skid Row and other well known homeless communities. We search high and low to find the women who really need a pick me up, and someone to talk to.
Make Over Project
We really love this, as we offer a full makeover that includes:
Hair cut, color and style
Full make up
Formal wear photo shoot
Includes giving each participant an entire working wardrobe and other clothing and shoes, purses, jewelry, accessories. We send them back with the make up and items to keep up this look too! Everything that a woman needs and loves to feel beautiful and good about herself!
Job training and placement resources
Lunch and group discussion
Submit your story of why you feel you need a makeover and what you think it would do for you! Watch out for our Make-over giveaway contests as well. Next one is in February 2021.
