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.
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.

I took a group of thirteen year olds for a couple of hours. What a great experience! Really makes you feel you are directly helping and the girls could work while chatting it up. Well run place and boy do they have a lot of ponytails they need help with!
I really enjoyed volunteering my time for something so rewarding. You don't realize the time that goes into something like this until you involve yourself. Shivani was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed getting to meet and talk to all the other volunteers as well. I look forward to helping out more often.
