Thank You, Parisian Beauty Academy!

Mentors, moms and kids in our Mentoring Moms program enjoyed fabulous "makeovers" thanks to the Parisian Beauty Academy in Hackensack. The school hosted the fourth annual event for our program on Tuesday, June 8. 55 guests were treated to haircuts, facials and manicures, with services provided free of charge by stylists who donated their time.

Virtually all of the women being mentored have limited financial resources, and professional beauty services are the luxuries they cannot afford.

As one mom said, "This was such a treat - I haven't been to a hairdresser in years!

The Mentoring Moms program recruits, screens, trains and supervises caring mentors for overwhelmed mothers in need of guidance in parenting and life skills as well as in moving from welfare to work.
