FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

 Are you a non-profit 501(c)(3) company?

Yes. We have received our non-profit designation from the IRS.

What is the social issue being addressed by Enchanted Makeovers?
Not long ago, women and children were rare at rescue missions and shelters. The harsh reality is that today, they are more common than ever. Millions of women, mothers and children now call one of the 3,500 shelters in the United States “home”. Imagine feeling hopeless, scared, vulnerable and unworthy. Now you are escaping domestic violence, human trafficking, a sexual assault or your a homeless female veteran living in an environment where often everything is broken or filled with things other people threw away. Imagine your children living in such a place. Our mission is to transform these environments into places that inspire and are supportive to those re-building their lives.

How is Enchanted Makeovers making a difference?
For the last eight years, Enchanted Makeovers, an all volunteer non-profit organization, has been on a mission to transform shelters into places that inspire behavioral and psychological change. A place that is supportive and inspirational for those re-building their lives. The unique makeovers, projects and programs supplement the shelter’s efforts, building a much stronger foundation for success and improved outcomes. In fact, the effectiveness of this model has been featured on the U.S. Department’s Health and Human Services website for Homeless and Housing Resources.
