About

CARE FOR THE HOMELESS (CFH) needs YOUR help planning the 5th Annual Health Empowered Beauty Fashion Show in October 2017! Join the Planning Committee in creating "the most inspiring fashion show of the year", which includes a gourmet food reception, signature mocktails, live entertainment and raffle prizes! All funds raised will go to Susan's Place, CFH's 200-bed shelter for mentally ill and medically frail homeless women in the Bronx.

THE MODELS of the night are the women from Susan’s Place, where they are invited to a professional casting call, fitting, and a full makeup and hair treatment before the Show. Participating in the show and the funds raised give these women the confidence to lift themselves out of poverty and the resources to start new lives.

SUSAN'S PLACE is more than just a shelter for the residents. Through counseling, goal-setting, educational and cultural activities, personal development and healthcare, the residents at Susan’s Place are offered opportunities to work toward independence again.

THE SHOW FEATURES Producer Traveling Trousseau and high-end and up-and-coming designers. Past designers have included Demestiks NYC, Shirley + Alice Vintage & Indie designer boutique, Monif C. Plus Size, JustFab Shoes, Seychelles Footware,NYU fashion design student Madeline Dolgin and many more.

With YOUR help on our Planning Committee we can help women be back on the path to independence and stability.

Together we will work on several aspects of the event, including the following:

  • Event planning (decor and event logistics)
  • Styling (fashion design)
  • Promotion (social media and press)
  • Donation requests (gift bags and raffle items)
  • And more!
