Shirley Raines, Beauty 2 the Streetz

CNN Heroes 2021 campaign

After the death of her young son, Shirley Raines spiraled into despair before she found promise and fulfillment serving those in need. Raines started Beauty 2 the Streetz to offer the homeless on Skid Row in Los Angeles a chance to look in the mirror and see something in themselves other than homelessness.

Since 2017, Raines has provided food, clothing, hair and makeup services -- and most recently wellness, hygiene and safety items -- to thousands of homeless people living on Skid Row.
