Our Suits Tell Stories.


The elements of a suit are seemingly basic: fabric, buttons and thread. But slip this suit onto the shoulders of a woman starting her job search, and this is where the suit becomes complex. This is where it means something. This is when it becomes more.

For 18 years, Career Wardrobe has been a resource for women just starting their journeys into the workforce. We’ve provided educational programs, networking tools and support to improve their lives.

Having a new suit coupled with self-confidence has both an immediate and life-altering impact on her life, and that of her children and family.

Consider a donation of $50 to provide a woman with the opportunity she needs to write the next chapter of her life…her own success story.

Our Services Improve Lives.

  • 87% are earning over minimum wage and 46% are working in positions with advancement potential and are above entry level.
  • After 6 months, 57% of women are no longer dependent on welfare, resulting in a $19 million savings to taxpayers.
  • And 30% are successful in keeping their jobs for over 3 months, allowing them to progress into a new career, not just a job.

For every $50 we raise, one more woman will receive a new suit for her job interview. Every suit will have a new story to tell. Stories of hope, determination and opportunity!
