I came upon the organization through my work in local media, and knew there was something special here. I volunteered as emcee at both the Power Walk and Springtime in Paris Fashion show, and the involvement led me to join the Board. I believe in the cause, our clients, and the volunteers who work to make the lives of disadvantaged women markedly better.

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

I would up the profile- let more people know about us. What we do, and how well we use the funds donated to us. Most in the community know we accept clothing donations, but I hope to soon see Dress for Success on the top of minds charitable people here in Southern Nevada!

I am so proud to be part of this organization that is changing lives in Las Vegas. The transformations that the clients undergo are amazing. And the passion that the volunteers bring to the boutique and every event is infectious!

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

Enable it to have more financial resources to further build its job retention and career services programs.

Dress for Success Southern Nevada is committed to supporting disadvantaged women by helping them get a job and be successful at work and life. Not only does the organization give these women professional attire for their interview, but it helps them prepare for the interview and return to the workforce with confidence. And after the women, get the job, Dress for Success continues to support them by providing them a week's worth of suits and offering them support services and programs where they can network with other women and continue to improve themselves. This 360 approach is the key to the organization's success.

Dress for Success not only empowers women to get back into the workforce by changing them from the inside out, but by providing suiting Dress for Success provides the clients the opportunity to change their lives--get out of the shelter, provide food for their children, a chance at happiness. Dress for Success Southern Nevada is young in years, but is extremely powerful in numbers and energy!!!

The only nonprofit in southern Nevada that “dresses” women on the outside and the
inside for their professional journey.
