Mission: In January 2003, the Enchanted Closet® was formed as a community service project to outfit disadvantaged girls for their prom. The working philosophy was that no high school girl should miss this rite of passage because she could not afford a dress. It was a simple principle that resonated in the Atlanta community and sparked an outpouring of support. Enchanted Closet received donations of hundreds of formal dresses and other social and professional clothing during a three-month collection drive. The founders of Enchanted Closet realized that they were in a unique position to make a positive difference in the lives of young girls. During the summer, Enchanted Closet volunteers began the process of formally organizing and secured 501(c)(3) status in the Fall of 2003. The mission of the Enchanted Closet is to physically, mentally, and emotionally outfit Metro Atlanta high school girls from low-income families through programs that prepare them for social and professional milestones.

Enchanted Closet is an outstanding organization that is very much needed in the community! They help young ladies secure dresses for their prom when they might otherwise not be able to attend. Enchanted Closet also has a GIRL$ Service Learning Program that teaches young ladies about life and how to be prepared for what they want to do! It increases their self esteem and empowers them. I know firsthand what being exposed to people who have overcome challenges and obstacles in life can do for the self esteem of young ladies towards encouraging them to follow their dreams and live on purpose! Enchanted Closet makes dreams come true!! Keep up the good work!!

I am a single parent, not a lot left after bills are paid, but the Enchanted Closet gave my daughter a chance to pick out a beautiful enchanted dress along with the clutch, shoes, makeup and other accessories. There is no way I could have afforded to purchase a these items for Junior/Senior Prom..But this is the best thing about Enchanted Closet, they didn't make us feel like we were bad people for not having money, they didn't be-little us.. they didn't frown down on me. They treated us like royalty, we had a personal assistant that was super nice as well as patient. I felt like she went above and beyond to help insure my daughter that she had the perfect dress. The entire event was well organized and all of the staff was super nice and helpful. I think that Enchanted Closet is the reason why a lot of teenage girls are able to attend their high school proms and look spectacular while doing so. Thank you Enchanted Closet

The Enchanted Closet is an awesome organization for young girls to explore who they are and what they want to do with their lives. From the field trips and workshops, there is something for each and every girl to experience. The enchantment of making over these darling ladies by providing formal dresses and the accessories needed is such a delight. This organization is ran by a First Class team of volunteers who are meticulous to every detail when it comes to the young ladies. Wishing The Enchanted Closet nothing but more and more Success!

The Enchanted Closet is a very good organization that focuses on a demographic that is often overlooked and because of this group of dedicated members that paradigm is changing. It's much bigger than their highly successful prom dress giveaway, it is an investment in the lives of young ladies to empower them with the tools to be successful in life.

You never know have what it takes to make a difference until we put forth the effort. Sometimes helping others has an adverse affect and you happen to be the recipient of a blessing. This happens for me when I volunteer with Enchanted Closet.

Being part of a blessing. Seeing girls grow and be empowered. Seeing girls share and be transparent where a weaker woman would crumble is like stacking bricks to build an empire. It's work but the result is WOW!

This is the best female established and run organization for girls. This group allows girls to be themselves by demostrating and ecouraging self esteem thru various programs. Th women that started and keep this organization going are great role models for all of the girls they provide services to. I am excited for "The Enchanted Closet" as it gains more notoriety for the works it does.

The Enchanted Closet is a wonderful program and I love it. The Enchanted Closet helped my daughter look so beautiful for her Prom Night at no cost. I see the many opportunity Enchanted Closet gives our girls to helping them to become productive young ladies in our communities. This is a very big step in helping our young girls to becoming Ladies. I love to receive emails from Enchanted Closet to help keep me abraced on any new events that are coming up for our girls. The events are about leadership skills and self awareness that helps our girls self esteem to rise. Thank you Enchanted Closet for all you have gone and continue to do in our Community.

A Concern Mother,
Darlene Isaac

Enchanted Closet is an awesome organization. I have been a volunteer with the annual prom dress giveaway since 2010. I must say there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the smile on the face of a young lady and her parent's face after receiving prom attire. Although I have moved, I will come back to GA to help outfit more girls for special occasions.
