Dress For Success

Create a helpful and pleasant “shopping” experience for disadvantaged women who are attempting to re-enter the job market. Volunteers will receive and sort donations at the organization’s monthly clothing intake and arrange the items in a free “store.” Clients who have attended resume-writing workshops and mock interviews will be allowed to search the space for work-appropriate items to wear to employment-related activities. The work of volunteers determines the look and feel of the store, so your efforts directly correlate to clients having a successful and enjoyable experience assembling a professional wardrobe.
