Programs: We view the connection between clothing and self-esteem as an opportunity to empower young girls. To date, Enchanted Closet has given away more than 3,500 formal dresses to girls for prom and other special occasions. Enchanted Closet also offers life-readiness workshops and mentoring to girls at-risk for lower educational attainment in addition to expanding its clothing offerings to include business attire for job and college interviews.

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.
Results:
We have mentally, physically,and emotionally outfitted over 4000 girls since 2003.
