ROCKFORD (WREX) - Something as simple as a haircut can make a huge difference for a person in need.
The Barbering Ministry at the Rockford Rescue Mission could use more help. It offers haircuts to homeless people who may not have the means to look presentable on their own.
Those involved say that new image can get people back on track - even help them find a job.
"It helps lift up their spirits, helps build their self esteem, helps them feel a little bit better about themselves," says Dennis Kirkpatrick with the Rockford Rescue Mission.
There are other ways to help the homeless too. To get involved just contact the mission.
