Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II is encouraging residents to participate in Safe & Sound, Inc.’s Barbershop Mondays, an initiative to provide free haircuts every Monday for youth and men, age 12 and older across the 15th Aldermanic District.

Today (Monday, March 16) the Barbershop Mondays session is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the COA Goldin Center, 2320 W. Burleigh St.

In line with Safe & Sound’s mission of uniting residents, youth, law enforcement and community resources to build safe and empowered neighborhoods, H.O.M.E Team (Heroes Operating In Milwaukee Everyday) has been created as an initiative to promote neighborhood connectivity, positive youth engagement in the community, and project-based opportunities for creativity and leadership development.

Remaining Dates for Barbershop Mondays are:

  • Every 1st Monday at Westcare Harambee Community Center, 335 W. Wright St.
  • Every 2nd Monday at Project Respect, 2730 N. 27th St.
  • Every 3rd Monday at COA Goldin Center, 2320 W. Burleigh St.
  • March 23rd at Holton Youth and Family Center, 510 E. Burleigh St.
  • March 30th location to be determined

In exchange for grooming services, patrons will sweep their own hair and add their names to a contact list for community service projects like lawn care, snow removal for elderly, and neighborhood cleanups.

Barbershop Mondays will involve local barbers from various barbershops, men from AMANI and other neighborhoods, and will also offer mentorship opportunities, and help bridge generational gaps between young men and adults.

For more information or to see how you can be a part of H.O.M.E Team, please contact Damien Smith at (414) 788-8085 or Damien@safesound.org.
