DRESSING FOR SUCCESS
Meet our “Dressing for Success” Team!
The team helps men and women who are entering or re-entering the workforce and striving toward a better future for themselves and their families. Clients are referred to these members by eight different community agencies. They personally select professional outfits for their clients to help make the transition to this next stage easier.

One member said, “I feel strongly the Dressing for Success program is an integral part of the process of people gaining employment. Having nice clothing appropriate for an interview is a HUGE confidence booster. I’d like to think that this program can be a part of a solution to the unemployment problem.”
Dressing for Success is an outreach program that provides unemployed men and women with clothing to enhance their image as they seek employment. They are referred to our chapter by several local job training agencies. Once you are referred to our “Dressing for Success” team, one of our team members will meet you at the thrift shop. She will have some outfits ready to try on when you arrive. But of course, you can pick from anything in the shop. She will be there to help you. You are given a budget and can often get more than one outfit along with shoes and accessories. These fabulous ladies will even provide tips on preparing for the interview.
This committee also provides several presentations per year on appropriate dress for the workplace.
Assistance League volunteers hope to provide for more men and women who are entering or re-entering the workforce.
