ProjectQ is working towards implementing a bunch new programs.
Here's what we're working towards:
On-site Mental Health Therapy, Body Empowerment Program, Computer Lab & Library,
and the ProjectQ Barber School!
Your donations help us implement these programs.
We believe that empowering homeless LGBTQIA+ youth will lead them to improved self worth and even acquiring housing!
ProjectQ is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Madin Ray Lopez. Our organization helps LGBTQIA+ homeless youth navigate a world that perpetually tries to diminish them. Our mission is to use hair and self-empowerment as a form of social justice.
ProjectQ provides free gender affirming haircuts, self empowering workshops, food & hygiene boxes, gender affirming clothing, chest binders, menstrual products, and so much more to LGBTQIA+ youth experiencing homelessness.
We Need Your Support Today!
ProjectQ began as a mobile salon.
After years of fundraising,
ProjectQ purchased this 1977 Airstream and begun construction to turn this into the mobile self-esteem building salon.
For the entire month of October 2018
the hairstream went on a US Tour thru middle America and the South to provide free haircuts to LGBTQ+ youth in
these underserved areas.
We are hoping to go on another
US tour the in Spring 2021.
