Street Smarts was definitely worth the effort and headaches and doubts I (and I’m sure the many others who pitched in) experienced. The women who responded to the invitation to participate in a day of pampering genuinely enjoyed themselves, and I was pleasantly surprised by the attention they gave to our education team: Stephanie, Platinum, Edwina, and Lisa.
So, what’s next? My goal is to hold three Street Smarts events every year: one in the late fall, late spring, and mid-summer, each offering services and goodies most needed by the women we are trying to reach with a message of self-care and hope. Stay tuned!
