Additionally, Ace of Hearts is dedicated to educating the public on how to be responsible pet owners and on the importance of spaying and neutering.

*BEAUTY AND CHARM: Nails and Facials with Recently Homeless Women

What: Provide pampering via masks, manicures, and pedicures to recently homeless women. Good Shepherd Center for Homeless Women & Children provides care from homelessness to self-sufficiency for women and their children. The residents of Women’s Village this event takes place at are adult women, many whom have only recently gained ownership of decent footwear, much less experienced the luxury of a foot soak. The women really enjoy this get-together because it allows them to look their best for job interviews. Volunteer Project: Once a month, L.A. Works volunteers come to Women's Village to support these women's journey with a little pampering and companionship with basic face masks, hand scrubs, manicures, pedicures, and hand massages. Sometimes there's also karaoke and snacks. Volunteers don't have to be experts at these services. This experience is more about bonding with the women, giving them companionship, and sharing quality time. Volunteer Requirements: This project is open to female volunteers 18 and older only. Special note: If you or your volunteer group are licensed hair stylists, estheticians, cosmetologists, or other skilled beauty industry professionals, your presence is a special treat. Please email the opportunity coordinator so we can be sure we best utilize your generosity. Accessibility: L.A. Works firmly believes that we strengthen the social fabric of our community by involving all in service. If you feel you need accommodations to participate in this project please email us at info@laworks.com. Questions? Email the Opportunity Leader below. If you would like to volunteer for this opportunity, please click on the SIGN UP button. *This project is managed by L.A. Works for our nonprofit partner and is led by an L.A. Works Community Leader. L.A. Works is a nonprofit, volunteer action center that creates and implements hands-on community service projects throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
