We believe in the power of choice and the freedom to decide how you want to live your life based on your own dreams. You have the ability to build yourself up from your strengths and create positive change in your life and in the lives of others.
At Catie’s Closet, we start with the youngest members of our communities who will go on to shape the future of our whole world by giving them the tools and resources they need to celebrate what makes them unique and express themselves, unapologetically.
Be Me® incites a new way of life where self-love isn’t impossible to attain. Instead, it’s a state of living we can all attain together.
The Be Me® movement gives us all the power to confidently say:

Haircare for All
Feature Partner: House of Cheatham
The House of Cheatham (HOC), one of the oldest continuing manufacturers of personal and beauty care products in America, addresses and satisfies basic skin and hair care needs for people of all ethnicities. HOC will provide Catie’s Closet with hair care bundles to address the maintenance and styling needs of students with natural and textured hair at a significant wholesale discounted cost. In addition to product, they will provide educational tools for kids to learn how to use these products, such as videos, tutorials, literature, and information cards through HOC’s education programming.
Thanks to Tonneson + Co, a Boston-based certified public accounting and advisory services firm, who launched this initiative by supporting 100 students, we have built a strong relationship with the House of Cheatham. Now we invite you help expand our hair care support to over 50,000 students in MA and NH. This “Haircare For All” initiative will build a foundation and will ensure the specialized needs of our students are met for the first time. With your support, we will be able to replenish all of our Closets monthly.
Your generous donations will be used to purchase a variety of hair care products from the HOC for all of our elementary, middle and high school students. Each bundle provides up to six products that focus on the maintenance and styling needs of our students. Your investment will also support ongoing training and education by HOC via how-to videos and brochures, which will be made available in all of our Closets and Zoom meetings.
