Empire Beauty School supports many anti-domestic violence programs throughout Minneapolis, including Alexandra House and Home Free through the Empire Gives Back campaign. The Empire Gives Back platform is nationally recognized throughout the media for their support in the Cut it Out program, which has been developed to help stylists recognize signs of domestic violence and spousal abuse.
Empire Gives Back started in Arizona in 2009 and has partnered with local programs and law enforcement agencies throughout the country including large cities such as Boston and more rural areas. Empire CEO, Frank Schoeneman, appears with Judge Jeanine Pirro in a public service announcement in support of anti-domestic violence programs. Empire Beauty School continues to put a high priority on supporting anti-domestic violence programs and women’s shelters.
The Alexandra House and Home Free Missions work to both prevent domestic violence and to help women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
