Review for Suited for Change, Washington, DC, USA
My famous last words whenever promoting Suited for Change are "They can't get rid of me"! That is the absolute truth. There was a dark period of my life whereas I had lost all hope for the present and the future. It was a monumental effort just to get off the couch and feed my cat. Suffering from back-to-back personal losses, I was unemployed, about to become homeless, and deeply depressed. Eventually, there was a shining light called "Suited for Change" that brought me out of that darkness and renewed my self-esteem. The first time I walked through their doors changed my life, for the better, forever. In participating in the many life skills workshops (resume writing, nutrition, interviewing techniques, etc.)that were conducted by volunteer professionals, I got back my sense of self, independence, a Federal Government job, and a new suit (with all the accessories)to boot! The workshops are specifically geared towards preparing a woman to enter the workforce fully equiped with the knowledge and tools she will need to succeed. And yes, I am a success! I developed a confidence that I never had before. The unselfish dedication of the staff and volunteers to the betterment of life for women, like me, who just may need a chance (or, sometimes, another chance), is remarkable. For this organization not to continue would be a great diservice to all the women who have yet to be reached. With that said, again I say, "They can't get rid of me!"
