Nonprofit brings wellness to Seattle’s homeless population
This week, the Beyond Project brought wellness services, including haircuts and clothing, to Seattle-area homeless members of the community.
The Beyond Project is a volunteer organization. Focused on empowering homeless individuals, the nonprofit provides wellness services in the community on a completely voluntary basis. Talented Seattle hair stylists, barbers, makeup artists, massage therapists and other beauty experts make up the Beyond Project team. Some of these volunteers express that their connection to the homeless is a deep one, as they’ve slept on the streets before themselves.
This past week, the nonprofit went out into the community to provide free wellness services. With the pandemic in mind, Beyond Project used this opportunity to provide homeless people with masks and sanitizer, along with haircuts, food and warm clothes.
