Pass the Beauty has been able to provide emergency financial assistance to survivors of domestic violence since 2010. Professionals at Pass the Beauty Salon have offered quality hair styling services to domestic violence survivors free of charge. The goal is to help a survivor feel confident and look their best as they pursue new, or better employment. Pass the Beauty provides a safe, welcoming environment for survivors seeking help. Through the Purple Purse Challenge, Pass the Beauty will raise money to launch a scholarship program for survivors pursuing a cosmetology degree. We strive to eliminate financial barriers for these students and reduce drop out rates among survivors attending state and community colleges.
Our organization currently operates from local community centers and Goodwill Career Solutions in Nashville, TN. where we provide domestic violence support group and educational training workshops to 20-30 participants. We sponsor an annual domestic violence gala every year that celebrates and inspire victims and survivors. We bring in community and political leaders to speak about domestic violence and bullying at our events to encourage and uplift families who have been victims of abuse. We believe in helping to build stronger hearts and minds, emotionally, socially and spiritually.
