Unicorn Children’s Foundation WINS BIG with the Help of Hair by Scott & Co.

Hair By Scott & Co. held a Grand Drawing on April 10, 2016 to win incredible vacations, jewelry, rounds of golf, and other spectacular prizes. The salon helped raise over $7000. Proceeds will provide scholarships for students with special needs to attend Unicorn Village Academy. The Foundation is so fortunate to have partnered with this generous salon in the community.

Unicorn Village Academy is an individual, strength-and interest-based educational model that allow students to achieve educational, personal, and career goals in an environment highlighted by self-determination and self-advocacy. The program integrates academics with speech/language, occupational therapies, counseling, social skills training, work-readiness preparation, activities of daily living and community based employment experiences. Unicorn Village Academy empowers students to cultivate respect for themselves and others by offering opportunities for life-long personal and social development.

With 1 of every 6 children affected by some form of intellectual or developmental disability, most of us have experienced the challenges first-hand or know someone who has. Every single person, from the high powered executive to the stay at home mom, can make a positive impact and help a child/family in need.
