Employment Resources for Women's Programs

Some organizations provide clothing and other resources to women for interviews and jobs. PHAs and partners involved with job training and placement programs can contact these organizations to help women with professional needs and to suit women for interviews. Examples of these organizations include:

Dress for Success
A non-profit organization that helps low-income women transition into the workforce by providing them with professional clothing. Each woman receives one suit when she has an interview, and a second when she attains full-time employment. Women are frequently referred to Dress for Success by non-profit member organizations including homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, job training programs, and English as a second language programs.

Suited for Change
Based in Washington DC, Suited for Change takes referrals from a network of more than 80 job training and social service agencies in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Referred clients receive two outfits for job interviews (another three after they obtain full-time employment) and are invited to attend a series of professional development seminars and workshops to develop the skills critical to securing employment.

Attitudes and Attire
Combines the benefits of job training and job outfitting. This organization goes beyond traditional job training to include workshops on self-image, appropriate workplace behavior, and appearance. They help their clients break down personal barriers to build self-confidence, enhance inner growth, and feel more confident about their outward appearance.
