Review for WARDROBE FOR OPPORTUNITY, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I continue to be impressed by the reaction I get when talking to and working with the clients we service at WFO. In addition to the wardrobing services, WFO educates and supports it's clients. The goal of the programs is not only to help clients get a job, but to keep the job and build a career. Clients are learning communicating, coping and networking skills in addition to those needed to successfully interview for a job. The clients have taken the knowledge they have gained so seriously, they have formed Alumni networks to keep themselves motivated and supported by positive role models.
While the wardrobing services we provide our clients get the most media attention, those of us who volunteer our time and efforts at WFO know that the clothes are only the hook to get our clients on the road to a positive and successful career. A great organization that continues to shine everyday.

Rating: 4 stars  

I have been involved with WFO for well over a year. In that time, I have had the opportunity interact with clients, staff, Board members and volunteers. As a seasoned non profit volunteer and the founder of a a program myself, I walked into WFO with a " knowing eye". I have been nothing but impressed every step of the way. The staff is professional, committed and caring. The volunteers are devoted, hardworking and welcoming to new people. The programs are well run and thought out for the benefit of the clients. The staff at WFO is constantly seeking to improve programs and services provided to their partners and clients. Working with WFO, to service clients and provide well needed programs to our community, has been a great experience. I encourage others to get involved with WFO.
