Beauty for Ashes 2.0 and the Wraparound Philosophy
BFA integrates a Wraparound approach to support the population we serve. This approach involves a collaborative community structure that works together to heal, educate, empower and help to employ each individual.
BFA provides behavioral counseling, personal/career coaching, life-skills training, parenting training, vocational training, and higher education preparation support. Additionally, we develop business plans for nascent entrepreneurs and those that would benefit from a self-employment track.
While we do not provide medical, child-care, housing, and transportation services, we collaborate with community agencies, State and local municipalities to tailor individualized support unique to each individual.
...to give unto them beauty in the place of their ashes, the oil of joy in exchange for their tears.
Beauty for Ashes 2.0’s Leadership Team is diverse with a dedicated Board of Directors. Collectively, they represent both the Public and Private sectors, and serve the community with commitment and passion while advancing the mission of the agency.
