Low-income, disadvantaged, unemployed women repeatedly encountering multiple barriers to success; barriers that force them into low wage industries that offer no benefits and little or no chance for advancement. Barriers that underscore the lack of adequate education and professional skills training, access to technology, poor money management and budgeting skills. These compounding challenges and the current unemployment crisis have created a critical impasse for women in need.


The Pretty Powerful Campaign will help our organization to engender the support of our local community, and address the challenges experienced by low-income women in need. Dress for Success relies on the generosity of donors to ensure high-quality, engaging programs are provided to disadvantaged women committed to finding and maintaining gainful employment. The Pretty Powerful Campaign will allow everyone to give the gift of empowerment and make a difference in the lives of countless women!

The scale and impact of Dress for Success Worldwide's services reaches far beyond each individual woman we help; we not only provide a suit but an opportunity to succeed in work and in life. Dress for Success clients obtain the tools and encouragement needed to advance in their careers, further their education, and reach self-defined success. The outcomes also stimulate growth within local communities and the national economy as clients begin to enter the workforce and prosper in their careers.
