Image consultant Eileen Scardina visited Horizon House in Swarthmore, Pa to give what every woman wants and needs- an afternoon of beauty. Theresa Murphy, Program Director of Homeless Services in Delaware County believes that the informative afternoon was not really about looking better; it was about feeling better. It provided an opportunity for women to share experiences and encourage other women to believe that they all are beautiful, inside and out. It was an afternoon of no judging, just loads of fun.
Eileen’s compassion displayed during the “First Impressions” workshop truly had the power to change lives positively. “Every woman deserves the chance to be spoiled and the right to feel special.”
Eileen is a member of BNI- Main Line I Chapter, an international business networking organization built on the philosophy “Givers Gain®”. Because of the generosity of this group, not only did each woman walk away with a knowledge of skin care, a new understanding of the importance of make-up and first impressions, but Mary Kay skin care and beauty products. At the end of the workshop, one woman said, “Today I feel amazing. It was wonderful. I’ve never applied makeup before in my life and felt good about it.Thank you so much.”
The women are served by our Homeless Services in Delaware County and live in supported settings which allow each to use their strengths to make choices, feel success and gain satisfaction.
Thanks to the generosity of BNI members, when the women venture out to look for employment, they will certainly give “Great First Impressions”.
