Hair Hopes is new non-profit helping disadvantaged children & teens who have hair loss due to a genetic disorder or medical illness.
MISSION & VISION
Hair Hopes is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to disadvantaged children & teens 18 & under suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair & financial donations to create a high end quality hair & scalp (cranial) prosthesis. Our mission is to provide a physical & emotional transformation sense of self, confidence & power to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails & finances to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.
HOW WE DIFFER FROM OTHER ORGANIZATIONS
Hair Hopes gives our recipients with the opportunity to contact the donor by providing them with contact information so they can send a personalized 'thank you' to the donor. This allows our hair donors to know where exactly their hair donation has gone. If a recipient chooses to remain anonymous, a Hair Hopes representative will notify the donor/s that they hair was used and to whom it was given.
