Say hello to our March non-profit, Brain Injury Services, a local 501(c) (3) organization. We are donating $1 from every haircut we perform in March to this great local non-profit!
The mission of Brain Injury Services is to empower those impacted by brain injury. Their Vision A community where every person touched by brain injury pursues their vision of a fulfilling life.
The group’s philosophy is that no two people are alike and no two brain injuries are alike. The severity of a brain injury and the type of brain injury can make a difference in a person’s recovery. The group’s role is defined as helping determine the needs and priorities of children and adults, designing a plan that increases self-sufficiency and self-confidence. A person-centered approach helps children, adults and their families make informed choices to achieve their goals. The process of giving control back to the individual and their family allows them to determine their needs and priorities. It increases self-sufficiency, self-esteem, and it improves their chances of rebuilding their new life.
