Programs: WE PROVIDE interview appropriate suits and accessories free of charge to disadvantaged women who are entering or re-entering the job market. We work with a diverse population of women who come from many different backgrounds. However, they all share one important quality in common: they all are highly motivated to change their lives for the better and we exist to assist them in doing so.
A WOMAN comes to us for interview clothing, we provide her with a suit and all the accessories necessary to create a professional image. As soon as she has found a job, each woman is welcome back for a follow-up appointment designed to assist her in building a professional wardrobe.
A PROFESSIONAL SHOPPER from our group of volunteers is assigned to work with each woman who comes in for an appointment. Between the nurturing and support that they receive from our volunteers and the knowledge of how good they look in their new outfits, the women invariably leave Dress for Success with a new-found faith and confidence in their ability to succeed in their aspirations.
