In 2017 the RBCF launched 5 grooming projects located at agencies in Baltimore City, Anne Arundel County, District of Columbia and Nationwide for target population identified as lacking access to regular grooming service. The 5 grooming projects combined produced 369 haircuts, hairstyles and 65 other hygienic services to a total of 1421 unduplicated individuals (1,522 duplicated).
As a result…
On 93 occasions clients served indicated that they will now be able to attend school with a neat and clean appearance
On 60 occasions clients served were able to attend their job interview(s) with a neat and clean appearance
These outputs and outcomes effectively reduced the problem of lack of access to grooming in for clients of the following agencies in 2017 by…
