Suited for Change
May 26, 2010

I was empowered by the staff to regain control of my life, I was given more than a suit, the staff dressed me with love and self esteem so I could face corporate America and return to work and become a productive part of society, They helped me get suited for life's task and gave me the confidence I needed to land not one job but two jobs and attend college at night. Because I was in a welfare to work program i felt uneasy about my financial situation, it took a casemanager Rev. Brown to give me a referral to attend Suited for change, I didn't no what to expect but I got more than what I needed, I left their in "Pursuit of my Happiness" and I don't regret my wonderful experience, I believe in the organization so much I went from client to ambassador of Suited for change traveling the halls of the city council advocating for funding to ensure this organization continues to thrive and serve more women. I was their 15,000th client served. They say the clothes don't make the man but the suit sure made a difference in my day and how I felt going to a job interview. Suited in DC is Simply the best!
