Shelter living is temporary. Women are eventually expected to secure housing. Along with securing housing, women are expected to attend necessary appointments and meetings within the community. Donations of hair and beauty care products assist with the above expectations including finding or maintaining employment and attending school or legal services.
While shelters receive many donations of hair and beauty care products, these products are overwhelmingly geared towards White women and these products can be damaging to Black hair. This leaves Black women utilizing shelters at a disadvantage. Help us make shelters more inclusive by donating hair and beauty care products for Black Women.
