BENEFITING: Dress for Success
Here is some information about Dress for Success:
"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 life.
Simply put, we teach women the tools to help them get back to work and assist them in remaining employed, as well as progressing in their positions until they have reached their desired level of professional achievement and personal fulfillment. We aim for each woman to attain self-sufficiency, so that she may establish a financial foundation on which to build a more secure life, a more stable family and stronger ties to her community.
We do this by addressing every phase of a woman’s career. Whether she’s unemployed and searching; recently employed and adjusting; or gainfully employed and succeeding, Dress for Success is there every step of the way on their path to financial freedom. We tap into the potential that already exists and provide each woman with the guidance needed for them to realize the power that has always been within them, as well as empower them to become the woman that they would like to be.
This continuum of services was established to streamline this success journey, so that the women we serve may evolve into leaders in the workforce, as well as leaders in life, as effectively and efficiently as possible. Because of the programs it offers, Dress for Success is able to help its clients go from surviving to thriving.
Since we opened our doors in New York City in 1997, we have grown into an organization that can be found in almost 140 cities throughout 18 countries. Through this expansive reach, we are proud to have served more than 850,000 women in our 18 years of operation."
