Just because our young people have been homeless, doesn’t mean they want to look the part. Thanks to You Affirm Self, our youth are treated to a day of beauty inside and out every other month. Angela Boyce, founder of You Affirm Self contacted us in the fall, wanting to host a makeover event. At the time, we had no idea what to expect. The day arrived and a dozen hair stylists, barbers and makeup artists filled our shelter setting up shop to create a memorable experience for our residents. Not only did each young person receive a makeover, they also were left with tools for the soul. You Affirm’s mission is to encourage us all to look within ourselves for the answers we need, the hope we need, whatever we need. The organization came back again at Christmas and in February. We love that they come to serve and bring so much joy. Many of the stylists take the day off work and even close down their businesses to love on our youth. They are truly a blessing.
