Working Wardrobe

"I got the job! The dress shoes I received gave me the extra confidence that I needed. Thank you!"

- 2017 Visitor

The YWCA Working Wardrobe provides work-appropriate clothing for low-income women who are seeking employment, starting a new job, or going to school for free. Women visit the closet when they are newly hired for a job or are seeking appropriate attire for interviews. The goal of the program is to prepare women for employment and boost their self-esteem by helping them “dress for success”.

We are always accepting office-appropriate clothing, accessories (hand bags, scarves, umbrellas) and shoes in all sizes. Please make sure that all donated clothing is in good condition. Items donated that would not be used in the Working Wardrobe will be further donated to another organization.
