Imagine going shopping in a boutique where every item of clothing is perfect for your upcoming job interview. Imagine having friendly people help you find the right size, color, and pattern for your new suit, not to mention matching shoes, a handbag, and accessories. Imagine walking into your job interview knowing that you look the way you feel – confident, capable, and ready to take on a new challenge.
Now – imagine how much you might pay for an experience like that.
Many low-income women in Philadelphia couldn’t dream of affording that kind of treatment. Some of them are unemployed, raising young children, and barely making ends meet on public assistance. Some have been laid off after years of hard work and can’t get back on their feet. Some have never even had a job – they know they’re smart and capable, but they have been down a difficult road. How do women facing these kinds of challenges get ready to interview for a new job, when so many can’t afford new clothes, let alone groceries or safe, consistent child care? This is where Career Wardrobe comes in.
Your one-time or monthly gift helps us give women in Philadelphia something you can’t put a price on – hope.
