HOMELESS OUTREACH PROGRAM

The Hair MWY teams (Hair M, Hair W and Y-Chrome) come together to make a difference in our community.

Program Mission
This program will offer a new start for people in our community who need support to get back on their feet.

We  worked closely with local Portland, OR homeless shelters and support organizations to select 9 adults to include in our first homeless outreach program. On February 13th they along with 6 of their 12 children came to Hair M|W to have showers, haircuts, shaves, make-up, nails and new clothing. Our goal is to show them as real people, people just like the rest of us. Except these people have a story that lead them to the streets and we want to share that story. We believe that when our community hears their stories they will want to do what they can to help them into a normal life and off the streets. 

For more information on each participant visit http://www.hairm-w.com/events/mwy-homeless-outreach-program/

The funds raised will be distributed to each of the individuals featured. Our goals is to raise $10,000 per individual, enough to help them get on their feet and even pay rent for year.

We will be adding photos of each of our guests from Monday's Make-over soon! It was so incredible to see these transformations take place and see the pride in people's eyes. Our next goal is to give them resources to secure their future. Any contributions help! So proud of our team for volunteering their time and caring so deeply about each and every person.

We had one little girl that stole all our hearts! I called her sparkle pony but her real name is Kholey. She got a haircut, manicure and her make-up done. She was filled with joy and love!

Yesterday was a huge success! Every one of our guests left with a brand new look. We couldn't have done it without the incredible outpouring of support from our community.

A huge thank you to Henry at "Well Suited" a high end Men's Consignment store on Broadway and Stephanie at "Consigning Women" in the Pearl and Lake Oswego for sending out guests out in style! In addition Tinker Hatfield made sure everyone including the kids left with a brand new pair of Nikes!

The team at MWY had so much fun shopping for our guests. Wait till you see some of the makeovers!
Our office became central hub!
