Helping women look better on the outside and feel stronger on the inside.
When a woman who has experienced homelessness and/or abuse seeks to rejoin the workforce, she often needs more than assistance in developing resume-writing and interview skills. She needs to be equipped with healthy self-esteem and an appearance that reflects inner confidence.
Makeovers That Matter answers that need.
We give these women a new, empowered look that helps them genuinely feel the drive and desire they need to change their lives. Not only do we offer FREE makeover services, but in preparation for job interviews, women receive empowerment coaching, fashion advice of what to wear and not wear, and basic interview do's and don'ts.
We also provide hair and make-up tutorials and customized gift baskets filled with products from our sponsors that they will be able to use as they develop their capacities to maintain their ready-for-work styles.
Our FREE beauty services don't stop at hair and makeup. Our philosophy tends to the spiritual beauty of these women as well. Our innovative "Pay It Forward" model challenges participants to donate of themselves by performing charitable work for organizations they are passionate about. Participants are then able to witness the powerful impact they can have on their own communities and are more invested to apply those efforts to their own lives to produce effective results.
To paraphrase a familiar adage, “Give a woman a fish, she is fed one meal. Teach her to fish and she can feed herself, her children and ultimately the world, for a lifetime.”
