‘Kutz for Kidz’ called success

Appalachian Family and Children, in conjunction with the Lawrence County Health Department and hosted by the Ironton-Lawrence County Community Action Organization’s Sybene Head Start, served almost 30 families at the “Kutz for Kidz” event Thursday.

Phyllis Newman, Head Start community relations manager, and Todd Jones, council coordinator, worked with site staff to ensure every family in need received services for this event.

Robin Black, event stylist, was able to assist all of the families who attended the event.

Sharon Daniels, CAO Head Start director, and Jones addressed the importance of continuing the Kutz for Kidz project in the Lawrence County community at the Professional Network Expo at Ironton High School to maximize services and prevent financial challenges by increasing the level of services for children and families.

“To most of us, three haircuts is $30. For single mothers and families with financial challenges, this equates to two or three meals for my family and gas to get to work,” one mother said.

Appalachian Family and Children representatives said they hope to continue their mission of helping families succeed one child at a time.
