Salon raises funds for Tahoe Women’s Services

Staff Report

kings beach – La Petite Styling Salon of Kings Beach is volunteering time Mondays, a day when the business is typically closed, to raise money for the Tahoe Women’s Services Safe House.

Tahoe Women’s Services has been renting the safe house for five years and is in the process of raising funds to purchase the home. The house serves as a shelter for battered women and children escaping abusive relationships – a place where they are offered a safe and supportive environment. During their stay, women participate in a variety of educational programs addressing domestic violence education, parenting classes, support groups, counseling and programs that connect them with various resources to help them transition out of the shelter. The children also participate in the Kids’ Time program, emphasizing constructive activities, mentoring relationships, self-esteem building and healthy responses. Kids’ Time includes male and female volunteers, allowing the children to experience positive relationships with adults.

La Petite will donate 90 percent of the profits to Tahoe Women’s Services in an effort to support the Save the Safe House campaign. All proceeds, raised Mondays until March 12 for manicures or hair cuts, will go directly toward funding the purchase of the Safe House.

For more information, call La Petite at 546-2100.
