Genesis Beauty Studio of Rialto will host a fundraiser to support homeless women and children on Saturday, Aug. 4, at 224 S. Palm Avenue, Rialto from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

Brenda Carr, owner of Genesis Hair Studio, along with her son, Henry Robinson, will be giving back-to-school haircuts for children, and regular haircuts for men, and women. Gift baskets will be sold, and silent auction items will be raffled off in support of Time for Change Foundation, a San Bernardino City nonprofit organization providing housing and leadership development to homeless women and children. All donated proceeds will go towards supporting Time for Change Foundation’s transitional living homes, “Sweet Dreams” and “Mt. View” which annually house over 70 families a year.

According to her business’s mission statement, Brenda first opened Genesis hair studio in 2001 with the goal of “using her cosmetology skills to restore purpose, vision and self-confidence back into the lives of the women that need and want to reestablish themselves in the community.”

When asked about her relationship with Genesis Beauty Studio, long-time client, Gail Randall said, “Brenda has always had a dream to help others and has fulfilled all of her goals. Not only is she remarkable as a stylist and entrepreneur, but she has a strong passion for helping the homeless.”

“Genesis Beauty Studio started as a dream for me, and then it became a goal and eventually developed into a reality. I know and understand the importance of maintaining your image when you are in the community and seeking employment,” said Carr.

Carr has worked in the past with Time for Change Foundation. In May of 2012, she provided three of the Foundation’s clients with beauty makeovers.

Genesis Beauty Studio is currently looking for volunteers who would like to assist the studio for the day of the event. Brenda Carr may be reached at at (951) 536-7309.
