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.

Would you recommend Wigs for Kids?

Great cause! Sorting the hair was not difficult (hardest part was putting rubber bands on small amounts of hair). The morning was more crowded than the afternoon. I would volunteer here again.

It was a great experience to learn the process of how Wigs for Kids creates hairpieces for children. I am happy to be a part of this process and will definitely be back to help again!

It's a loving place. Very quaint but, also very educational. It feels really good to do something that makes a Childs LIFE! I will be going back

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.
