A barbershop owner in Cincinnati named Vernon Jackson is in the news, because he still goes to work on his day off . . . to do free haircuts for kids with special needs. No one else is allowed in the store, so they get his full attention.
It’s especially helpful for kids who are sensitive to sound, or get nervous around groups. He’s been doing it since 2021 and donations help make it happen. Now he’s trying to expand the program and help barbershops in other cities do it too.
