I have been working as a public relations volunteer for 2 months, and I find Dress for Success River Cities is very wonderful organization where I see disadvantaged women coming for help and they are served very well and dedicated. I feel myself very helpful when I can contribute something into this work.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

looking disadvantaged women successful in their jobs and their lives. Everyday when people come to Dress for Success River Cities, we tell them what we are doing, why we are doing that and how their clothes and donations help to change someone's life. This is amazing!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would suggest more space and more staff for our work now. All of our staff are working very hard and dedicated right now.

I had volunteered for Dress for Success previously, then when I found myself at age 50+ cut from a job of 23 years and unemployed, I applied for a professional position with Dress for Success River Cities in Huntington, West Virginia, and am thrilled to be part of a team of women helping women. We provide not only professional wardrobe, but career counseling, training in interview skills, help with developing, printing and sending out resume's, AND perhaps most importantly, moral support and confidence! It's a joy to look back at the end of each day and say, "Wow...we really helped ________ today!", and know that our sister can now help her family and others...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

from all socio/economic and professional backgrounds, with the common denominator of unconditional support and acceptance to each woman served, and a genuine outpouring of love and "REAL" help!
