Career Dress
Changing Lives with a Change of Clothing

What is Career Dress?

Career Dress serves as a one-stop-shop to help women who are actively pursuing employment. Experienced volunteers style and completely outfit women with interview clothing, shoes, undergarments and a matching hand bag. Once employment is secured, Career Dress is able to provide at least two additional complete work outfits. On average, Career Dress helps approximately 30 women a month feel confident when they go on an interview.


One of the very unique features of this program is that is run solely by volunteers. Our volunteers not only make sure that our clients look great; they also listen and help build the much needed self esteem that empowers our clients to succeed. Since 2003, Career Dress has assisted over 3,000 women in need.
