Makeovers That Matter

Helping women feel stronger on the inside
and look better on the outside

Our Mission

Makeovers That Matter is dedicated to the empowerment of women who have served our nation and the wives and caretakers of our military personnel. Our mission is to supply these women with the tools and training they need to re-enter the workforce.

Our FREE service

Our FREE services include The Mindset Program, our no-cost, career advancement training, as well as hair, make-up, and fashion styling. In return, participants have the opportunity to “Pay It Forward” by writing letters to active military personnel. These letters are included in care packages for troops stationed overseas.

Our Program

Our program to help women re-enter the job force was founded by Michael John (“MJ”) Derricott as a labor of love. MJ’s selfless dedication has inspired hair stylists, makeup artists, and invaluable mentors to donate their skills and time to female veterans, wives, and caretakers. Makeovers That Matter works with agencies including Volunteers of America, US Vets, Salvation Army, New Direction, The Haven, Dress For Success, and The Soldiers Project.

WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US IN HELPING TO ASSIST THESE DESERVING WOMEN AS THEY TAKE THEIR RIGHTFUL PLACE IN SOCIETY.

In Their Words

"Thank you for the kindness and caring you showed to me and the other veterans...I've never before experienced such warmth from people who are not relatives...I hope you will allow others to experience the benefit you allowed me."

More than a Makeover

Makeovers That Matter uses the good will philosophy of offering a hand up not a hand out approach. Makeover services are offered to women while they attend courses which give the participants an opportunity to earn their way and pay it forward.
