Stranger gifts barbershop to man behind ‘Haircuts for Homeless'

- Brennon Jones made headlines a year ago when he started giving haircuts to the homeless on the streets of Philadelphia. 

“Totally free. Feed em, provide them with clothing, toiletries, the whole nine yards,” said Brennon.

He has continued giving free haircuts to strangers, but in the process he also inspired a complete stranger to pitch in. Sean Johnson, a fellow barber, gave Brennon a fully renovated barber shop. 

“He said listen, I’ve got a building I want you to come check out. He said do you like this place?  I said yeah I like it, he tossed me the key and said it’s yours,” Brennon told FOX 29.

Sean was planning on expanding his barbershop down the street. However, that changed when he met Brennon. 

“It wasn’t about me giving a barbershop, when you look at the homeless and the things that they need, I looked at it as more. I built something and I want to see it keep going and I want to see it do a great thing,” Johnson said.

The new shop will open next month with set days exclusively for the homeless. 

Brennon didn’t know how he was going to continue haircuts on the street during the winter months, but his prayers were answered. 

“I just continue to rely on my faith, God brought me this far I know he’s not gonna leave me now,” he said.

And because of Sean’s kindness, Brennon’s can continue all year long.
