FORT GREENE - Just Because Salon in Fort Greene is offering free beauty treatments to homeless women in honor of Mother’s Day.

Recipients say they haven't had the chance to be pampered in a long time.

Salon owner Carol Thomas says she got the idea after volunteering on a mobile beauty truck last summer for needy women.

She says the offer will continue on the first Sunday of every month.

"These women have been going through such a rough patch and we thought it would be great just to show them that someone cares about them," Thomas says.
