Become a Third Strand Salon Sponsor

| sidesea |

$7,800.00 allows your organization to provide the following vital, direct care:

1. A minimum of 50 clients will be served annually/salon (+ countless friends/family/community supports). Your reach is exponential.

· An estimated 25 (50%) of these families are facing financial crisis (financially compromised) and need sponsorship and/or donor relief

2. The initial investment in your community of $6,000 offers a financial pool from which to draw needed resources for your financially at-risk neighbors. Hair Matters’ administration assists clients with billing insurances when applicable and uses these funds to replenish up to $6,000 of your sponsorship line item. This figure includes the initial outfitting of your salon, as well as assembling your stylists’ initial certification paperwork (licensing, legal and insurance documents).

3. The remaining $1,800.00 is designated for your stylists’ annual training and re-certifications, portal access and administrative support (marketing/advertising/social media supports, etc). In this way, Hair Matters maintains industry expert skills and an unparalleled standard of care.

Additionally our administration seeks to:

-Offer Reduced Private Payment Options (implementing a sliding fee scale)

-Discuss and help clients design their personalized Care Registry

-Provide scholarships, donated goods and services as well as financial assistance as available.
