St James Emmaus Ministry

Hair Cutting

hair_cuttingFrom the beginning, Emmaus Ministry quickly recognized the need for providing haircuts to the homeless. It is virtually impossible for the homeless to get haircuts as many are shunned, refused or do not have the money to pay for a haircut. This ministry began with two women providing haircuts twice a month for several years. Currently, a past resident of the homeless shelter is now giving back, providing haircuts on a monthly basis. The light in the men’s eyes and joy on their faces shows the confidence and gratitude that this simple act of kindness can make.
