Dress for Success is so much more than I had imagined! The organization provides interview suiting, coaching, and career clothing, yes, but the real impact is in the confidence boost the clients receive! The Dress for Success boutique is unpretentious yet elegant giving ladies of any socioeconomic background the experience of being pampered and cared for during their employment search. The environment is professional demonstrating workplace behaviors to succeed in job placement. There is no waste. All contributions are stretched and used to the fullest.

I am most inspired by the numbers of women who become employed and return to help others.

In the sometimes daunting search for a job, Dress for Success encourages and delivers many women to self sufficiency.

I came upon the organization through my work in local media, and knew there was something special here. I volunteered as emcee at both the Power Walk and Springtime in Paris Fashion show, and the involvement led me to join the Board. I believe in the cause, our clients, and the volunteers who work to make the lives of disadvantaged women markedly better.

I started volunteering for Dress for Success in March 2013 at the Power Walk and have not stopped. I have been able to have a clothing drive with my employer to help obtain suits and clothing for our clients.

I am excited to be helping facilitate the Mentor Group that we are creating. This will be help empower the women to grow personally, spiritually and in their careers.

We are committed to supporting our community and every client that walks through our door.

The women are amazing both clients and volunteers. I love the Board Members as they are dedicated to making the organization a success as much as the volunteers.

Suiting the clients is so much fun and rewarding. They leave with smiling faces and sometimes tears of joy.

Being a part of this organization brings me great joy and I have met a lot of women I now call my friends. I am blessed to have found this organization to volunteer my time too.

Working with Dress for Success and helping facilitate some of the programs offered has been one of the most gratifying experiences for me. We have the most fantastic group of volunteers whose dedication, commitment and enthusiasm are second to done. Not to mention THE BEST Executive Director of any non-profit around. Dress for Success provides immediate gratification, not only as a volunteer experience, but for the clients we serve, as well. The transformation is immediate ... both inside and out! Fantastic opportunity to really touch and transform the lives of women.

The most rewarding volunteer experience I have had. A little skeptical upon entering our beautiful boutique, every woman leaves with a renewed sense of self. The change in attitude and self confidence is immediate, and it is so gratifying to know that I played a part in this transformation. Our involvement goes far beyond just a suit ... as we provide on-going support, training and mentoring as these women move into the workforce.
