Jay Gives Free Haircuts and So Much More


Jay Soto, Local Barber Volunteers at LUM

Once a month Jay Soto will be offering FREE haircuts in the LUM Office for clients and Emergency Shelter guests. A native of Lafayette and graduate of McCutcheon High School, he is a talented barber with the J. Clark Barbershop, Lafayette.

At LUM Jay gives much more than just a haircut. His interactions with each person are special. Jay gives his undivided attention — offering love, hope and respect. As he masterfully trims each person’s hair, you can see dignity restored and confidence built in each of his “customers.”

Help us THANK Jay Soto for this wonderful gift he is giving the LUM clients, especially those experiencing homelessness. Jay’s desire to give back is inspiring.
