In honor of Mother’s Day and to serve a female population that is often overlooked, students at Minnesota School of Cosmetology – Woodbury voluntarily gave haircuts, styles and manicures to residents of Tubman, a local family crisis center.
According to their website, Tubman helps women, men, youth and families who have experienced relationship violence, elder abuse, addiction, sexual exploitation or other forms of trauma. Throughout the Twin Cities, Tubman provides safe shelter, legal services, mental and chemical health counseling, elder abuse resources, youth programming and community education, including public information campaigns to provide community members the information and support they need to get help or give help.
The Minnesota School of Cosmetology staff and students felt this volunteer event was definitely a success, as did the residents and Tubman staff. “It went beautifully! Everyone was very nice and accommodating. The staff and students there were amazing and did a great job, especially with the two youth who came along,” said Niki Robinson, Family & Youth Advocate at Tubman. “Thank you again for your services and support of our clients.”
Tubman is an essential program in our community and the Minnesota School of Cosmetology was happy to help their residents feel beautiful. If you are seeking support, domestic violence resources or safety planning, or know someone that is, please call Tubman at 612.825.0000.
