For nearly two years now Care Cuts has been working with the homeless and addicted here in Calgary Alberta to bring a sense of love and care to people who otherwise are often overlooked.
Began by myself, Misty Wind (Facebook, Instagram, Google), in 2014 we have grown and become a staple in the inner city community as a group of individuals who care for and offer help to those in need. In these tough economic times we have slowly watched our clientele downtown go from severely addicted and mentally ill individuals into professionals and tradespeople who just simply are unable to find work.
We offer fresh hairucts, clothing and food on our weekly visits downtown on Sundays. What most don’t understand, or at least take for granted, is the fact that a haircut isn’t only just a haircut…quite often it is the difference between being able to have the confidence to walk into a detoxcenter and ask for help, or into an interview and feel as though you are actually being considered for the job…and not just overlooked.
Your donations will ensure that our stylists and clients are able to be out of the cold inside shelter to
wash, cut and style hair. Consider for one moment that your contribution isn’t only impacting the lives of our clients, but also of every one of our volunteers and stylists. Many of the people who decide to join
our group have gone through similar difficulties as our clients and being a part of Care Cuts gives them something to work towards and feel proud of….to stay sober….to stay strong during yet another hospital
visit, or to be thankful for being able to be employed and to pay rent.
Yup, Care Cuts isn’t just for those who are homeless to have hope and feel love, but it is also for each and every one of us involved to not give up striving to become better members of our community while
being blessed to be able to help those still living in the struggle.
