Hello Generation Q!

Enchanted Makeovers would love our charity added to your list. Since 2007, Enchanted Makeovers’ mission has been to transform homeless shelters for women and children into places that inspire behavioral and psychological change. Through our various projects, mentoring programs and makeovers of the physical space, women and children are introduced to a way of thinking that helps to shift their outlook about their lives and possibilities for the future. The shelter is transformed into a “beacon of hope”. Mentoring programs such as the“Sacred Sewing Room”, “Stepping into the Dream” and “Capes for Kids” develop important life and coping skills.

Thank you!
Terry Grahl
Founder & CEO
