ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Trusting The Process is a faith-based nonprofit that provides haircuts, clothing, hygiene services and hygiene items for people across Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.
“The mobile boutique is really to make it more accessible to people," founder Alexia Perry said. "We see houseless, we see low income, we see at risk, so there's a lot of different communities that we serve. But the mobile boutique really makes it easy for us we fill it up based on the need.”
With the help of volunteers and donations, the organization has managed to serve hundreds of people and collect thousands of items of clothing to give back to those in need.
Most recently, Trusting The Process teamed up with Big Brothers Big Sisters to offer a girls night for mentors and mentees to come together. During the event, the girls were able to get their hair and nails done, pick out clothing they like and capture the experience with a photo shoot.
“Our main goal is to empower, equip and build confidence," Perry said. "That's what we're always trying to do and we also want to break the stigma about houselessness, low income and at risk.”
Trusting The Process works with men, women and children ages 12 and up.
