WHO WE ARE

The mission of Dress for Success® Central Virginia is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Dress for Success provides our clients the tools and confidence they need to take charge and achieve success in both their personal and professional lives.

We offer every client a confidence-boosting personal shopping experience and Career Center consultation as she graduate from a local agency or nonprofit’s job readiness program, prepares for her job interviews, and launches her new career.   

THE IMPACT

It’s no secret that today’s job market is rough. Unemployment, job applications, interviews, rejections – these things take a toll on your self-confidence. As every woman knows, what you wear has a huge impact on how you feel, and looking good and feeling good build self-confidence. By providing professional attire and a supportive environment to a woman fighting to regain her footing, Dress for Success Central Virginia helps to restore her self-confidence, which increases her chance of success in a competitive job market. 

The impact is not limited to the direct effect on the clients themselves. Working women have an outstanding impact on the economy as a whole. Many women are the primary care-takers of their family; hence helping a woman achieve economic independence has a ripple effect on the well-being of her children and her community.   

WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU GET

Dress for Success Central Virginia is opening our new boutique this month. To help us launch this ambitious mission, we ask for your support in suiting our first 30 clients. Just imagine the potential impact if we could suit one woman like Veda every day for one month!  The average cost of one (1) woman’s suit is $100. Your donation, no matter the size, can put us one step closer to writing another wonderful success story.

OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP

As Veda states in the video, working with Dress for Success gave her the ability to make strides toward her goals of becoming independent, employed and actively contributing to society.  Her story illustrates the effectiveness of the Dress for Success program.   In addition to your monetary donation we ask that you also consider donating your precious time, talent and/or treasure to help women like Veda.
