For several months, we have been organizing clinics throughout our service area (Bennington, Rutland, and Addison counties) to give BIPOC kids access to culturally appropriate hair care. In a predominately white state, this is not something that is easy to find, and it is important to help the mental and emotional health of the children in our community. We provide hair cuts and braiding or styling at no cost to the participants.
This program is supported in part by Rutland Regional Medical Center, and by individual donations. To add your support, visit our donation page and choose Hair Clinics from the program dropdown when you make your donation.
Our next clinic will be held on February 26 at Rutland Regional Medical Center.
