Wigs for Kids

logo

Our 501c3 non-profit charity is housed in a century home with a pretty decent sized yard. Our services of providing children experiencing hair loss with hair systems extends throughout the United States and Canada but our Administrative office is located right here in Westlake. Our small staff is looking for one or more individuals who have an interest in lawn or landscaping services. This consists mostly of trimming back hedges and bushes on a somewhat regular schedule during the growing seasons. We are open to a one-time only visit or someone who would like continuous or scheduled visits. Also open to group or individual / s for this need. Refreshments provided.

About Wigs for Kids

Location:

Mission Statement

For over 30 years, Wigs for Kids has been providing Hair Replacement Systems and support for children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, Alopecia, Trichotillomania, burns and other medical issues at no cost to children or their families. The effects of hair loss go deeper than just a change in a child’s outward appearance. Hair loss can erode a child’s self-confidence and limit them from experiencing life the way children should. With an injured self-image, a child’s attitude toward treatment and their physical response to it can be negatively affected also. Wigs for Kids helps children suffering from hair loss look themselves and live their lives.

Description

When children lose their hair, whether as a result of medical treatments, health conditions, or burn accidents, they don't just suffer physically. The change in their appearance can drastically undermine their self-image and sabotage their self-esteem. To combat this additional trauma, Wigs for Kids, a non-profit organization provides custom designed hair systems and support to children at no charge to them or their families.
