The Staff at River Community Covina and Wellness Center teach our participants how to love themselves, the importance of self-care, and other important things that help a participant improve their self-esteem. Some of our participants who first come in seeking treatment have been on drugs and living on the streets for many years. More than likely, they haven’t experienced blessings such as getting pampered, taking care of self and attending stores like Sephora.
When Staff recently visited Sephora, we shared with the store manager about the services we provide to help both men and women. Without any hesitation, the manager agreed to provide mini-makovers to our participants, and the make-up artists were more than willing.
For some of our participants, this was their first time getting make-overs and some had never heard of Sephora before this day. Staff at Sephora also hooked these women up with a gift bag full of samples for them to take home. Gratitude was deeply expressed by our beautiful women in recovery.
