Our dear friend and colleague Normajean Korn, unexpectedly passed away July 8, 2015. She was the owner of Total Image Salon in Colorado Springs.
Founded in 1988, Urban Peak is the only non-profit organization in Denver and Colorado Springs that provides a full convergence of services for youth ages 15 through 24 experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Their goal is to help these youth overcome real life challenges and become self-sufficient adults.
They do this by providing five essential services at little or no cost to the youth (youth in housing do pay a minimal rent each month):
- an overnight shelter
- a daytime Drop-In Center
- Street Outreach
- Education and Employment programming
- Supportive housing
Their goal is to meet youth where they are and to provide them with the assistance and support they need to become self-sufficient or obtain the necessary services they need to exit a life on the streets. Urban Peak’s programs and services are founded on the principles of trauma-informed care* and positive youth development and assist youth in reaching their potential and living a successful life off of the streets.
*To provide trauma-informed services means that we understand an individual’s experience of trauma impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social, intellectual and spiritual. Trauma-informed care is an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives.
We hope you will all join us by donating new socks for the youth in need.
You can drop socks off at the salon any time during business hours.

She will be missed by many and certainly remembered fondly by those who knew her.
The salon is continuing on and we hope we can continue to fulfill your styling needs.
