2020 PROJECTS

HUM SHELTERED WOMEN’S GROOMING PROJECT

We are proud to announce our HUM Sheltered Women’s Grooming Project. RBCF will be assisting with completing a full-service unisex salon exclusively for the 250 women and children who will occupy this newly constructed transitional housing facility. RBCF will ensure that the women have all of the necessary tools and supplies they need within the salon to provide regular grooming for themselves, their children, and fellow clients. The facility is located in South East Baltimore and is expected to begin operation in early 2022.

FOSTER PARENT VIRTUAL GROOMING PROJECT

RBCF is proud to announce our upcoming Foster/Adoptive Parent Virtual Grooming Project. During the next twelve months, RBCF will provide group and one-on-one virtual haircare training sessions for Anne Arundel County foster/adoptive parents. This project was created when we assessed that 40% of Anne Arundel County foster/adoptive parents lacked the proper grooming knowledge and skill when providing hair care for their foster children. We also discovered that 32% of children residing in foster care live in homes with parents of different races/ethnicities, which often contributes to the parents’ lack of knowledge and skill. Therefore, the goal of this project is to increase the grooming knowledge and skill of Anne Arundel County foster/adoptive parents concerning children of all races and ethnicities.
