Would you like to help a woman who needs a little helping hand in order to get back on her feet and support herself and her children? You might want to check out Dress for Success' amazing program, then.
The organization, comprised of over 90 affiliates around the world, is there to help women break the cycle of poverty and government assistance in a very simple, and yet so effective, way - provide her with appropriate interview clothing and some basic training in interview etiquette. Once the woman gets a job, she may come back and pick another work-appropriate outfit, letting her start her job feeling confident.
This is more than just "looking good" - this is about giving women who have often been abused, or just otherwise never given any kind of emotional support, the chance to see that someone does care about and believe in her.
The volunteers (lead by an angel in disguise as an executive director, Debi Foster), do an incredible job in making each client of the organization feel appreciated and ensuring that she leaves their offices with her head held high. It is a great formula for success.
Maybe in your closet or drawers, you might have some of these items? If you are trying to find a good home for them, call Dress for Success at (208) 288-4405.
