2801 Grant Ave: Monday, April 17th from 2-7 p.m.
4601 Market Street: Wednesday April 26th from 2-7 p.m.
Our friends at Ausome Cutz will stop by both our locations, giving free haircuts for children in CFA programs. They’ll also take photos of kids’ fresh new looks! Ronald and Monique’s inclusive mobile barber shop specifically serves the Autistic community. Understanding that sometimes a haircut isn’t just a haircut, Ausome Cutz creates a sensory-friendly, enjoyable, and safe environment for kids and their families.
