Haircuts with Heart respectfully requests a $1000 grant for our Bay Area Community Outreach Project.
As a new, Oakland-based nonprofit organization, Haircuts with Heart believes the simple gesture of a haircut can help restore a sense of dignity. We host free haircut events in a buoyant, caring, respectful manner to local community members in need.
We access our guests -- Elders, Homeless, Unhoused, Veterans, Women and Youth -- through partner hosts such as Operation Dignity, Women’s Daytime Drop-in Center, Berkeley Food and Housing Project, Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficency and Alameda Boys & Girls Club.
Our organization is comprised of professional stylists, barbers, makeup artists, nail technicians and salon owners adept in all hair textures who wish to give back to their community.
