Programs: PERSONAL PRESENTATION CONSELING: To make certain that our clients receive personalized attention and leave our office with increased self-confidence, each client meets one-on-one with a trained volunteer at an appointed time to select two interview outfits and accessories. Once each client secures employment, she returns to Suited for Change to select three additional outfits, giving her a week's wardrobe for her new start.

PROFESSIONAL AND LIFE SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM: is designed to provide clients with skills needed to secure and maintain professional employment and foster personal growth. Seminars are offered throughout the year and focus on such topics as resume preparation, interviewing techniques, professional image and etiquette, financial literacy, and health and nutrition, to name just a few. The PLD program also includes a Career Day program that introduces clients to a variety of occupations. Many clients have received jobs as a direct result.

Mission:
Suited for Change provides professional clothing and ongoing career education to low-income women to increase their employment and job retention potential and to contribute to their economic independence.

Our services are available at no charge and by referral only to low-income women who have completed a job readiness program at any of the 150 job training and social service agencies with which we partner and are seeking employment.

Suited for Change serves about 110 women each month. Our clients come from DC (65%), MD (20%) and Northern VA (15%).

Since our founding in 1992, Suited for Change has helped more than 14,000 women in the transition from welfare to work.

I became involved with Suited For Change in 1995. I think it struck a chord with me because it serves women in the Washington, DC comunity who need a helping hand. I know that at one time in my life, I could easily have been a recipient of Suited For Change's services. I continue to be ... more »
