When difficulty comes your way, who do you turn to? When Anita walked through our doors she had lost her confidence. She had been out of work for 13 years, had gone through a relationship breakdown, and was struggling in a job market which had changed dramatically in her absence. We were the main connection for Anita as she sought support to rebuild her life. To help more women like Anita to get a job that can provide a safe, secure future for their family, we need your support!
Over the course of her marriage Anita had found herself increasingly shut out of decisions about the family's finances. Her bank accounts dried up and were slowly closed. She was given smaller and smaller "allowances" to pay for all the family's expenses, while her husband was vague about where the rest of their money was spent. Anita needed to find a job to support her new life as a single parent, however she had been out of the job market for so long she didn't know how to start.
Thanks to our compassionate supporters, Anita and her daughter are no longer struggling. Without donations from people like you, Anita would not have had Dress for Success to turn to. It is through donations from our generous supporters that we were able to provide her with career coaching, resume support, interview preparations, digital career support workshops, and professional clothes for interviews and her new role. With this support, Anita was able to secure a new job - that she loves!
Your gift today is vital in empowering women into employment, connecting them to practical support when it's needed most. Your donation is more than just a gift - it's an investment in the future. When women work, families thrive, communities prosper, and the economy grows. Thank you for being part of the journey with us.
