Welcome to Giving Hands Foundation, thank you for hearing my heart for our community!


I'm passionate about serving women and children in the community, who are homeless, dealing with domestic violence, abused, and abandoned. 25 years ago, I suffer like some of these women , dealing with homelessness, domestic violence, suicide, teenage pregnancy, and being a single mom. Giving Hands Foundation was birth through my pain, and now, I see how my pain had so much purpose!

In 2014, God gave me this great vision of serving our community. He told me to open up a salon and give free makeovers to homeless women and children. I have the privilege to see broken women and children lives, heal and restored. I am eternally grateful for this great opportunity.


My Philosophy is, "People don't care about what you know, until they know how much you care!"

Psalm 41

1 Blessed are those who have regard for the weak;
    the Lord delivers them in times of trouble.
                                                                                            2 The Lord protects and preserves them—
                                                                                                they are counted among the blessed in the land—
                                                                                                he does not give them over to the desire of their foes.
