I have a non-profit that is near and dear to my heart that has an excellent opportunity for us as family and friends to contribute to a truly deserving cause. The mission of Dress for Success is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Once employment is secured clients may join The Professional Women's Group. (PWG) is an international networking association for Dress for Success clients who have recently entered the workforce. The PWG was created to promote employment retention and career advancement by providing valuable skill-building information, while creating a safe environment to network with other professionals. Every year we participate in a Community Action Project. In 2015 we voted to do our part in our communities to promote a STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) mentorship program.
