OPERATING PROJECTS SINCE MARCH 2000!
T.I.M.E. GROOMING PROJECT
RBCF will install a full-service single-station barber/beauty salon onsite at the T.I.M.E. Organization in Southwest Baltimore. T.I.M.E. is an outpatient mental health clinic that provides supportive housing for adults and adolescents. The full-service barber/beauty salon will provide no-charge hair care to the 21% (or 923) of their clients who lack access to regular grooming services.
BSU GROOMING PROJECT
RBCF acts as project manager of a full-service grooming center onsite at the Student Center on the campus of Bowie State University. The onsite grooming center allows all students a community space to provide grooming services to their fellow classmates
RBCF PARTNERSHIP PROJECT
This project was created when we measured that barber & beauty salons in Maryland fell below the national average when it comes to participating in activities that make grooming services accessible to target populations with barriers to regular hair care. This project’s goal is to increase the number of barber & beauty salons that participate in benevolent grooming activities. For the next 12 months, local area barber & beauty salons will be invited to participate via invitation from RBCF. Approved barber & beauty salons will receive resources and technical assistance to conduct their own benevolent grooming activities
