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.

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

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.

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.

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

The ability to assist women to become more confident and provide them with the necessary tools to become self sufficient.

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

The staff and the numerous volunteers are totally dedicated to the mission of the organization.
