Falesha R. Martin

Lancaster entrepreneur, and owner of Turn N’ Headz Hair Studio, Falesha R. Martin, is taking a stand for women experiencing domestic violence and abuse in Lancaster. After the devastating loss of her younger sister due to domestic abuse, Falesha decided to act. She began the local non-profit, Breath Again: The Sheena Martin Foundation, which provides women a safe place to escape their abusers. The organization is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is completely free of charge.

In addition to Breathe Again, Falesha hosts many educational events in the community, including an annual Women’s Empowerment Event for the residents and staff of the YWCA. Falesha also served for many years as the primary coordinator for “The Melissa Walk for Life”.
