Review for Suited for Change, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Suited For Change is one of the most inspiring and effective non-profits in the DC area. Our mission is simple: giving women a hand up, not a hand out. We provide gently used professional clothing and program support to women who are transitioning from poverty to economic independence. Our clients come from the most challenging of circumstances: drug abuse programs, homeless and domestic abuse shelters, exoffender programs....and they come to us seeking real change. I have met so many SFC clients and former clients that have said that Suited has literally transformed their lives. Respect, personal attention-- we given our clients the boost they need to enter the job market with confidence. We also leverage every dollar that we receive by partnering with other social service agencies in the area, and by relying on our "army of devoted volunteers" to deliver our services to the client community. We have a dedicated and hardworking board of directors which is steering SFC through the challenges of the current economic situation, and focusing SFC on delivering our services in the most effective manner possible.
