I am a graduate of the Social Service Worker program at Niagara College Canada and I am a mother to four amazing children.
I am a relief worker at a local women's shelter but previously I had been a co-op student and an employee at other shelters for women as well. I have witnessed the lack of hair and beauty care supplies for black women.
While shelters receive many hair and beauty care donations, the items donated are overwhelmingly geared towards caucasian women.
I have been asked many times by black women for hair/beauty care products only to inform them each time that there are none. It then occurred to me that I had never seen any products for black women in any of the shelters that I worked for.
It is now my mission to provide hair and beauty care products for black women to shelters in Ontario,Canada and I hope to accomplish my goal ..one donated box at a time...
