Empowering the Homeless (through Haircuts)

What can we give to homeless people? Food? Money? How about: Haircuts. Joining us on the show is Leslie Kawai, who is a board member and Gala Events chair for an organization called Care-Cuts. We talk about how offering homeless people haircuts is not just a nice thing, but something that creates job opportunities and–most importantly–gives people confidence and dignity.

Care-Cuts has impacted hundreds of people on the streets of Salt Lake City, but we take a deeper look at what’s causing this success. We also ask how everyday individuals can help the homeless with both long and short term needs. If you would like to get involved, here are some useful links:
