Beauty Night Stories

Haunting. Poignant. Beautiful. Inspiring. These are the stories of Beauty Night, told by people living in Canada’s poorest postal code. Many are homeless, hungry, suffering from mental health issues or debilitating illness. 1 in 3 have experienced sexual violence before the age of 18. But through our makeover program and life skills development, they are able to connect with resources, access services and transform their lives. Check out some of their stories below.

Beauty INVANCITY features Caroline MacGillivray, founder of the Vancouver based organization, Beauty Night Society. Located on the downtown eastside, this organization changes the lives of women and youth living in poverty through wellness, life skills development and makeovers. 

Four times a week, Beauty Night’s life-makeover program creates a safe space where participants can be themselves, make friends and experience healthy touch.
