The Five Pillars

Welcome to Heirs Barbershop, where we're not just about giving great haircuts, but also about making a meaningful impact in our community. In an era plagued by mental health challenges, gun violence, and limited opportunities, we stand as a beacon of hope, offering more than just grooming services.


At Heirs, we believe in tackling societal issues head-on. Through our commitment to mentorship, mental wellness programs, entrepreneurship, apprenticeship opportunities, and community engagement, we aim to address the root causes of these challenges. 


Our approach is holistic, drawing on aspects of social work to truly give back to our community. By fostering relationships with local organizations and prioritizing hiring from within the community, we're not just a barbershop; we're a catalyst for positive change. Stay tuned as we delve deeper into our five pillars, each designed to empower individuals, uplift communities, and create a brighter future for all.

The 5 Pillars - 


Mental Wellness

Community Engagement

Entrepreneurship & Business Coaching


Mentorship - At Heirs, we believe in the power of mentorship, offering a platform where youth can engage with successful individuals from their own community, gaining valuable advice and insights to guide their personal and professional growth.


Mental Wellness -  We prioritize mental wellness by providing a range of activities, support groups, and check-ins to address trauma, promote mental well-being, and reduce stigma surrounding mental health. Our emphasis lies in encouraging individuals to know their status and seek the necessary support.


Community Engagement - Heirs Barbershop fosters community engagement through initiatives such as learning from elders, participating in community cleanup efforts, and investing back into the local neighborhood. We instill a sense of pride and responsibility within our community members.


Entrepreneurship and Business Coaching - Our comprehensive program guides aspiring entrepreneurs through every step of the journey, from conceptualization and planning to resource identification and execution. We equip individuals with the tools and knowledge they need to turn their vision into a successful business venture.


Apprenticeship - Through our apprenticeship program, we offer youth the opportunity to acquire lifelong skills in barbering through two years of on-the-job training, preparing them for licensure and potential employment within our establishment. Our application process ensures accessibility to all interested individuals, with no cost incurred by the youth participants.
