Shear Kindness

Can something as simple as a haircut change the world?  We believe it can.

Shear Kindness was created to provide those in our community who are under-resourced or victims of domestic violence the opportunity to receive a professional haircut.  However, this is about more than a haircut.  The is about being a small part of participating in the process of healing and restoration.   It’s about dignity and the belief that all people possess intrinsic worth and deserve unconditional respect, regardless of age, sex, health status, social or ethnic origin, political ideas, religion, or criminal history.  Their is a beautiful image inside every person, and we are pursuing it to draw it out.

Participants are selected by referral from an affiliated non-profit agency that works to end issues of homelessness and/or domestic violence.
