Volunteer hairstylist or makeup?

I am interested in giving back to our city by volunteering my services as I am a hairstylist and freelance makeup artist.

I was wondering if there are any programs or places I can bring my services to help those in need? I have heard of homeless connect but I am looking for other places as well. I feel fulfilled by helping others and it would be wonderful to do so in my field of work!!

    You should contact Wings Of Providence and offer your services to the women at the shelter!

  4. Ahhh! Can you pm me? I work for a not for profit and we have a residential facility that helps adolescents that are going through complex mental health issues, I was hoping to provide a makeup class for them, as many of them are super interested.
    I can definitely provide more information if you are interested!

    talk to bissel center and or that place that helps women dress for job interviews

  6. Smile-Edmonton is a group that helps the homeless a lot

  7. adera recovery centre. The ladies could use some love!

  8. Excel society does an annual fashion show with some of their clients- a chance for them to get dolled up for the evening. They may do other events too.

  9. Check with your local seniors residence..I’m sure the ladies would love a coif and polish!

  10. You could try WIN or WING or YESS. They help prepare for job interviews etc. I know YESS deals with a lot of transgender youth who could likely benefit in not sure if they have anything like that in place.

  11. Ronald McDonald house – they have a salon space in the house for the families staying at the house. It’s a great way to give a little boost to someone!

  15. Ask the YMCA too. I’m sure young teens/adults struggling to find work/going through a hard time would love to feel a bit pampered and maybe boost their confidence more too.

  16. Here is Smile Edmonton’s facebook page’. They would love your generosity!

  17. Get in touch with the folks at Suit Yourself – Edmonton
