Programs

Our organization offers six signature programs to ensure each of our clients is moving towards a life of self-sufficiency. On her initial visit to Dress for Success, a woman enters our Suiting Program and receives a suit appropriate for the industry in which she is interviewing. After a woman gets the job, she returns to Dress for Success for additional clothing to provide her with the foundation for a professional wardrobe. Following the suiting process, clients receive career guidance, the chance to acquire technology skills, and assistance in their job searches through the Career Center Program. Recently employed women are invited to participate in the Professional Women's Group (PWG) Program; an environment for newly employed women to network with peers and career professionals to improve their understanding and success in the workforce. For women who are referred to our Suiting Program and Career Center at the beginning of their job search, but do not immediately land a job, we offer the Going Places Network by Walmart Program. The Going Places Network serves as a "safety net" for clients committed to gaining professional skills, accelerating their job search and building confidence through weekly training sessions, one-on-one career coaching and networking in a supportive environment. Beyond career counseling, Dress for Success offers Financial Literacy education and promotes a Health and Wellness initiative to underscore the importance of a healthy well-being to be able to thrive at work, home, and in life.
