Cut It Forward

Award Date: December 8, 2023
Awarded: $15,000

Cut it Forward is on a mission to provide culturally specific hair and skin care resources for children of color in foster and adoptive care. Recognizing the challenges these children face concerning their ethnic hair and skin care needs, the agency built a model based on lived experience to fill in the gaps and support them in being seen, celebrated, and valued as they naturally are. It addresses these needs in our community through its three programs: Education (workshops and coaching sessions), Products (including a free online product store), and Professional Services (including a professional online directory for hair care referrals).
