Dress for Success ® River Cities
January 8, 2010

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!
