Dress for Success changes the lives of the clients served. The organization does much more for these women than provide a suit for interviewing. Dress for Success empowers women to take control of their professional and personal lives by providing the skills and support required to interview effectively, to obtain and maintain a job, and to be successful in all facets of life. As a board member, I find my time and effort rewarding - I can see that Dress for Success is making a difference!
As both a volunteer and a board member, I have seen up-close the work that happens at Dress for Success Pittsburgh. I can't say enough about the impact the organization has on the women we serve. Finding a job and playing an active role to grow in that job take time, energy, commitment and sometimes a little help from others. DFS Pittsburgh - volunteers, staff, board, advisory boards - offer that help and guidance to our clients day after day. I applaud the hard work of everyone involved - especially our clients! - and am proud to be part of this fabulous group.
I joined the board of Dress for Success Pittsburgh because I felt the work they do to be so important here in Pittsburgh. Now, over 3 1/2 years later, I remain so impressed with the support they are able to provide for women (and their children) - providing not only professional clothing and support to gain and retain meaningful employment, but also gifting these wonderful women with the self-esteem they need to be successful.
