Cut it Forward

Award Date: November 2, 2021
Awarded: $15,000

Cut it Forward is a nonprofit organization providing culturally specific hair and skin care resources for foster and adopted children of color and their caregivers. In communities of color, ethnic hair and skin care is much deeper than an aesthetic. The Crown Series is one of the organization's pathways to do the intentional, cultural work in honoring the historical significance and healing powers of proper hair and skin care for children of color. Through immersive, educational workshops for caregivers and children, the organization works to support caregivers in helping their child look their best, and most importantly, feel their best while helping to keep their children connected to elements of their culture.
