⚙ BEAUTY AND CHARM: Nails and Facials with Recently Homeless Women
WHAT: Provide pampering via masks, manicures, and pedicures to recently homeless women.
ABOUT GOOD SHEPHERD: Good Shepherd Center for Homeless Women & Children provides care from homelessness to self-sufficiency for women and their children. The residents 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 socialize.
VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES: 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. You don't have to be experts at these services. This experience is more about bonding with the women, listening to them, and sharing quality time.
IMPACT: Good shepherd Center serves over 1,500 women and children each year, beginning with the Emergency Outreach van that reaches out to the women living on the streets and encourages them to find shelter with Good Shepherd Center. Each night we provide shelter for up to 93 women and over 50 children in one of our four residences.
SPECIAL NOTES: 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.
