Black Hair and Skin Care Support

Fostering Relationships and Helping Black Youth Boost Self-Esteem and Cultural Identity 

“Speaking from my own experience, and those of my Black and Brown foster youth peers, sometimes the simple things can be profoundly meaningful. When we were not provided with the appropriate care and products for our hair and skin we suffered additional trauma and blows to our identity that may be hard for others to understand.”
-Alicia Smith, MSW, Foster Together Network | An Initiative for the Center for Strategic Partnerships
