#3 MCVET GROOMING PROJECT

The RBCF will install its next full-service barber/beauty salon at the Maryland Veterans Education & Training (MCVET) located in Baltimore City. MCVET is a 175 bed transitional and drop-in facility that exclusively for military veterans who are experiencing homelessness. The project was developed when we assessed that 100% of the MCVET clients (male & female) lacked access to regular grooming services. An 80% to 100% reduction in the lack of access to grooming for its clientele is the targeted outcome for the barber/beauty salon installation. Installation is set to begin in the Spring of 2018.

2018 Fundraising Goal: $29,610
