On Thursday, May 19, 2016 HAUTE HAIR had the honor of participating in this year’s SHE VET Resource Expo at the PEPCO Edison Place Gallery in Washington, DC. Its primary focus of the organization is employment, and training which promotes restoration, prevention, and decreasing the poverty rate of women veterans through the process of transitioning in life journeys.
With an added bonus, we attended the event in support of Miss District of Columbia as she shared her own military experiences as a female soldier and also as ambassador for Haute Hair Extensions.
I truly had an amazing time talking to so many women veterans about my experience in the military and hearing great stories about their experiences. ???????? It is so important to ensure our veterans are taken care of after their time in service! They deserve a smooth transition into the civilian job market and it is spectacular that events like this take place to ensure that! This event brought together residents, businesses, and other local organizations in support of women veterans. These women often face substantial gaps and hurdles when it comes to gaining assistance in the areas of finance, housing, education and employment.
