Who We Support

Crown Box Project

Cut It Forward

Award Date: November 18, 2020
Awarded: $16,500

The Crown Box Project brings resources and ongoing support to families through ethnic hair and skin care education. This resource was designed in collaboration with foster care providers to conduct interactive hair and skin care workshops that support the needs of ethnic foster children across central Oklahoma. At each training, foster children and their caregivers learn about the culture of hair and skin care, essential skills and techniques, and receive a starter kit containing products that are specifically curated for ethnic hair and skin types.

The Crown Box Project collaborates with foster care providers, hair and skin care professionals, and cultural experts to bring immersive, interactive workshops over the basic principles of ethnic hair and skin care, culture, and product education. At the end of the workshop each participant will receive a starter-kit of products specifically selected to meet their hair and skin care needs. With this education and experiment approach, children and their caregivers will have the tools needed to practice their newly developed skills.
