There are many organizations in our community with a mission to help those in need. And they all do amazing things. The Hope Project of WNY is one of them.
The Hope Project of WNY is available to provide temporary assistance with clothing, toiletries, and household items for folks struggling for a variety of reasons, including – job loss, catastrophic event, domestic violence, terminal or serious illness. They also help our veterans who need it.
Most organizations rely on generous volunteers to keep things moving along. That is certainly the case for The Hope Project, where it absolutely takes a village. People like Caitlin Vazquez – who provides free haircuts, once a week, to members of the project. Dee Miller, the Founder of The Hope Project of WNY says having volunteers, like Caitlin makes their mission possible, “We are grateful to have Caitlin in our community. It’s not everyday that someone who is trained in a craft will volunteer their time to help others less fortunate – especially when it’s the way she makes her living and would otherwise get paid for providing the service.”And she adds, those free haircuts are a big deal, “As far as our members, a haircut on the low side would be at least $10 anywhere else. Times that by a family of 5 and Caitlin just enabled that family to use that money (minimally $50) for other needs. It’s difficult when you are struggling, and we know that. Caitlin knows that. We, along with Caitlin feel that something as simple as a haircut can help these families feel cared for and we respect that need.”
If you, or someone you know, needs help – OR if you’d like to help others – you can contact The Hope Project of WNY.
By the way, I love the name of this project because I believe that – If you have HOPE, you have everything.
