The Black Nonprofits and Business Podcast

Aug 11, 2022

Ep. #68 – Robert Cradle is the Founder of Rob’s Barbershop Community Foundation.  Rob started out as an owner of a barbershop in Odenton, Maryland. In fact, he was the first Black man to open a barbershop in that area. As the shop grew into a successful establishment, Rob discovered there was a homeless shelter close by with individuals who couldn’t afford his services. So he decided to use his shop as the groundwork to build a community friendly human service organization.

Rob eventually closed his shop and focused his efforts on starting an organization that would allow him to expand his dedication to serving the community. He works with clients of residential, transitional, emergency housing facilities and public schools and builds barbershops and hair salons in their facility. He also builds dog grooming stations.
