Charity Spotlight:  Dress for Success
   
  
Nothing is better than getting that follow up phone call from a woman saying “ I got the job!” Dress for Success supports women with clothing and confidence to get through the first few weeks of employment with the right look.  Their Professional Women’s Group, PWG, provides a job retention component for employed clients through a program that addresses their social and economic needs in relation to work, home, and community.

Members receive essential resources, discounts on various products and services, and of course additional clothing to complete a working wardrobe.
