Our Suits Tell Stories. What Will Yours Say?
At Career Wardrobe, we combine your support with a woman’s determination to improve her life and the result is thousands of stories of personal achievement. For every $50 we raise in December, another woman will receive an interview suit and start her journy to work.
Please consider a donation of $10 or more to provide a woman with the opportunity she needs to write the next chapter of her life... one that is centered on success!
And how's this for a bonus... when you share your #StoryofaSuit on Facebook/Twitter with a link to our Crowdrise Holiday Challenge you will be entered to win a $100 shopping spree courtesy of TJ Maxx.
Our Services Improve Lives.
For 18 years, Career Wardrobe has been a resource for women just starting their journeys into the workforce. We’ve provided educational programs, networking tools and opportunities and - most importantly - work attire that give women the confidence and support to improve their lives.
Having the support of Career Wardrobe is a critical element in employment success for unemployed women who have limited resources and an ever-decreasing network of supportive services.
Although 49% of women assisted by Career Wardrobe were successful in securing employment within 30 days of their appointment, their success stories don’t stop there…
- 87% are earning above minimum wage and 46% were working in positions classified as higher than entry level, which allows a woman to move toward economic independence.
- After 6 months, 57% of women were no longer dependent on welfare, resulting in a $19 million savings to tax payers.
- And 30% were successful in keeping their jobs for over 3 months, allowing them to progress into a new career, not just a job.
