Barber Boot Camp by Alex Gonzalez

(Miami, Florida) The Salvation Army’s Center of Hope is a transitional center for formally homeless males and male veterans. This facility provides day training programs and housing resources for men in need.

The generosity of the center’s staff inspired local barber, Alex Gonzalez, to donate his time and barbering skills. Every month Alex provides free haircuts to center residents which help motivate and renew the self confidence in these men during this transitional period. He has also established a training program for those who want to learn how to be a barber.

Through his Barber Bootcamp, Alex has developed educational (bilingual) programs and classes in the barber trade. Alex hopes to establish more training programs in the future to enable young men to provide a better life for themselves.

If you ain’t going to fight for yourself, nobody is going to fight for you…”
– Alex Gonzalez, Creator of Barber Bootcamp
