I have been a member of the Board of SuitAbility for approximately 15 years and have never found a more committed group of women, nor a more devoted program director than Kathy Hayes. The services that this organization provides to women who just need a helping hand, and sometimes a dose of self esteem, range from providing mentoring and training, to providing clothing that will allow them to more comfortably and successfully seek and maintain jobs. All of these services are provided at no charge to the client. The one-on-one experiences with women as a volunteer teaching a class or helping them find job-appropriate clothing really allows for a personal connection that provides as much benefit to the volunteer as to the client.

The Great!

My experiences working with the women in this program have been extremely rewarding and serve to remind you that "there for the grace of God go I."

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The rewards from working with clients and boosting their self esteem. The real friendships that I've formed with other Board members and our program director.

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

Top notch!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open the Women's Resource Center that we've discussed in our Board meetings that would be a one-stop place for women that need services.

Years ago I found that I had a plethera of business clothes that were ill fitting on me. I really wasn't interested in selling them so I followed up a lead I'd heard about and met with Kathy Hayes. She was awesome and made me feel important for donating. I mentioned that I was a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant and she invited me to help with the make-up application at a fashion show. I had a blast and so did our models. The concept of Suitability, a non profit organization,is so important because women need to lift their self esteem when it has been stepped on. I've heard it said that when you look good, you feel good. Your self confidence goes up and you know YOU can do it...whatever "it" might be! I am so honored to be allowed to lend a small hand to this group. They are truly amazing. I also like the way they take care of their clients in a sophisticated and quiet manner. They don't look for accolades...they just get the job done as best they can listening to client clues to make it better every day!

The Great!

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

their fund raising endeavors by helping at a fashion show.

Ways to make it better...

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

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

How Kathy Hayes and her staff make everyone feel important!

Ways to make it better...

more people had attended the fund raising events.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

too much stuff for a small area.

One thing I'd also say is that...

no one complains about what they do not have but work as well as they can with the things they do have!

Suitability helped me during a hard time when I had lost everything. They helped me by giving me great work attire and the experience was fabulous. The ladies are so loving and positively uplifting. Everything they give is professional and of good quality. They even took their service a step further and gave me internship there to further my skills. Suitability is an amazing nonprofit that has helped many women overcome situations by giving them a little push over the bumps in life.

I've served on the Board since its inception. As a board member I've volunteered to assist clients in choosing outfits. This has been a very rewarding experience for me when you see how appreciative they are to be able to go to a job interview with a new outfit. I truly feel that if someone feels good about themselves it gives them more confidence resulting in a better interview.

I remember that I had just found a job when I was referred to Suitability. I was very excited for my new job, but I did not have enough office clothes to wear and did not have the money to buy it either. When I went there, Kathy was so welcoming, she made me feel at home. She was also very patient helping me to choose clothes that I liked and looked good on me. I have been in this job for almost three years now, and every time that I wear any of the garments she helped me pick that day, I get tons of compliments. People cannot believe that I did not pay a cent for them. I thank Kathy, all the volunteers at Suitability, and all of the funders for keeping such a great organization running. Without their support, I probably would not feel as secured as I am today regarding my professional appearance.

The Great!

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

the honest care that its director and volunteer show. They really want to help you and are there just for you, the client.

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

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help millions of women like me who have the knowledge and the experience but are lacking the counseling and services that Suitability offers.
