Target demographics: Low-income, job-ready men who are seeking employment in the Houston area

Direct beneficiaries per year: 500

Geographic areas served: Greater Houston area and beyond

Programs: Our services provide support to low-income, job-seeking men to overcome barriers when getting ready to re-enter the workplace. With newly acquired job-ready skills, clients are referred to us from qualified agency partners. Each client receives assistance to fill their specific gaps to be successful during their job hunt and beyond. Our services include:
• Professional Attire for Job Interviews and Work-Related Outfit upon Employment to Build a Working Wardrobe
• Networking Opportunities and Professional Development Series
• Supportive Services and Resources

Mission:
Our mission is to promote economic independence for disadvantaged, job-seeking men by providing professional attire, employment and career development plus workforce supportive assistance to help clients rebuild, renew and regain their work and personal lives.

Results:
We have suited over 5,000 clients since opening in June, 2004. This year we have suited over 500 men and have successful job placements at 75% of men served.

We spent a lot of time this year fundraising to move our facilities to more efficient and larger-sized space so we can serve more clients and expanded our programs.
